Quang Ninh is a province along the northeastern coast of Vietnam and is home to Ha Long Bay, a World Heritage site. The provincial capital is Ha Long and the new airport will allow Quang Ninh to connect to other provinces in Vietnam as well as international destinations.
As well as boosting tourism to the Quang Ninh province, the airport is expected to boost local development, as Van Don District has been designated as one of the first three special administrative-economic units in Viet Nam.
Vietnam Airlines, Vietjet Air and JetStar Pacific are expected to begin flights once the airport opens and their flights will connect Quang Ninh with a variety of cities throughout the country including Can Tho, Da Nang, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Hue, Nha Trang and Phu Quoc.
