Vietnam’s aviation sector has witnessed double-digit growth in passenger transport in the past decade, and the market is forecast to build up momentum in 2019.

The Airports Corporation of Vietnam predicted the number of passengers passing through airports across the country will exceed 112 million this year, 6 million higher than the figure recorded in the previous year.

Last year, the number of air passengers climbed 12.9 percent to 106 million.

Amid the rapid growth and increasing competition of Vietnam’s aviation market, improving service quality and passenger experience becomes vital for carriers.

By 2020, Vietnam plans to have 10 international airports and 13 domestic airports. The total number of airports will increase to 28 by 2030.

Experts said it is important to have proper airport planning with regards to tourism and socio-economic planning and develop good transport connectivity to the airports.-VNA
