World's Leading Regional Airport Category Nominates Van Don Airport

Van Don Airport – the very first private airport in Vietnam is nominated in the top regional airport in the world at the World Travel Awards (WTA).

Located in Quang Ninh Province, around 50km from UNESCO heritage Halong Bay, Van Don Airport was launched in December 2018 with the investment capital of VND7.5 trillion ($324 million).

The regional airport category evaluates airports operating in a small or less populated geographical area. These airports also do not include immigration facilities to process traffic among different countries.

Kicked off in 1993, the WTA was regarded as "travel industry's equivalent of the Oscars”. WTA depends on the corresponding award in the region to short out the final list for each category and reveals the winner based on vote volume on the official website. The award ceremony is scheduled for November 26 in Russia.

The other 6 nominees are Chubu Centrair International Airport (Japan), Denver International Airport (U.S.), Gimpo International Airport (South Korea), King Shaka International Airport (South Africa), London City Airport (U.K.), and Salalah Airport (Oman).
