The figure will include more than 46 million international visitors and 81 million domestic ones.

The total number of passengers served at airports could be higher if obstacles in the management of flight zones, land, and legal provisions in investment could be addressed to speed up aviation infrastructure upgrading projects, according to the ACV.

The corporation said in 2020 it will focus investment on building passenger terminals T2 at Vinh International Airport in the central province of Nghe An and Cat Bi International Airport in the northern port city of Hai Phong, and passenger terminal T3 at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in the southern economic hub of Ho Chi Minh City.

The ACV will invest in projects expanding aircraft aprons at Da Nang, Cam Ranh, Cat Bi, Phu Bai (Hue), and Noi Bai airports.
