DIEN BIEN: Dien Bien Airport in Vietnam's northwest region is ready to reopen on Dec 2 following expansion works, said Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV). The upgrade includes bigger runways, taxiways as well as engine aprons and a new passenger terminal.

Currently, airlines have installed check-in systems and auxiliary systems at the airport. These systems apply new technologies such as biometrics to ensure safe operation of the aviation system, the corporation said.

Vietnam Airlines and Vietjet Air, the two carriers operating flights to and from Dien Bien Airport, have deployed technical flights to ensure official operation on Dec 2.

The Vietnam Air Traffic Management Corporation (VATM) also announced that the final equipment of the flight management system was installed on Nov 29, and the air traffic control staff would be mobilised to increase human resources for airport operation.

Expanding Dien Bien Airport is one of the key projects to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Dien Bien Phu Victory in 2024 and create economic growth momentum for the northern mountainous province and the northwest region. - Vietnam News/ANN
