Hue airport will be under repair in 2013

Phu Bai Airpot

The Airport Corporation of Vietnam has announced a plan to close Phu Bai International Airport (Thua Thien Hue Province) in March next year for runway maintenance. The reparation time may take up to 8 months; therefore, tourists who wish to travel to Hue city by air might have to use Da Nang International Airport instead, which is 90 km away.

The Thua Thien Hue People’s Committee in association with the provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the provincial Department of Transportation has informed tourism companies about the case and has implemented a plan to transfer passengers from Da Nang International Airport to Hue city conveniently.

Phu Bai airport normally serves around 3,000 travelers per day. In mid-2011, Phu Bai airport closed for one month for repairs without early notice, causing tourism business a loss of about VND 25 billion to transport passengers between Da Nang and Thua Thien Hue.

Hue, famed for 100 architectural works reflecting the life of Emperors and mandarins under Nguyen dynasty (1802-1945), has become one of top attractions in Vietnam. As a result, in December 1993, Hue was recognized as a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO.
