Lien Khuong International Airport

The move is expected to spur tourism in the Central Highlands Region and Lam Dong province. Particularly, Da Lat, the paradise in the Central Highlands, is becoming an attractive destination for international tourists.

The airport serves regular and irregular international and domestic trips, private aircraft, military aircraft and other licensed planes.

Lien Khuong airport, originally named Lien Khang, about 28km from Da Lat city’s downtown, started operating in 1933.

After many upgrades and expansions, the airport now welcomes over 2 million passengers on average each year.

Over the past several years, the transport ministry has allowed Lien Khuong to operate many irregular international flights transporting tourists to the province although it is a domestic airport.

Since January 2017, the airport served over 1,700 flights from Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea and China.

According to the province’s planning until 2030, the Lien Khuong international airport will meet criteria of an 4E level airport with an area of 340.8 ha and has a designated capacity of 5 million passengers per year. By 2050, it is expected to expand to 486,8 ha and handle 7 million passengers yearly./.
