Cam Ranh International Airport

Cam Ranh International Airport (IATA: CXR, ICAO: VVCR) (Vietnamese: Sân bay Quốc tế Cam Ranh) is located on Cam Ranh Bay in Cam Ranh, a town in the province of Khanh Hoa in Vietnam. It serves the city of Nha Trang, which is 30 km (16 NM) from the airport.

Cam Ranh Airport was built by the United States Army during the Vietnam War, and operated by the United States Air Force for military purposes as Cam Ranh Air Base.

In 1972, the base was turned over to the South Vietnamese government. On April 3, 1975, North Vietnamese forces captured Cam Ranh Bay and all of its remaining facilities. From 1979 to 2002, the facility was used by the Soviet and then Russian Air Force because of a 25-year rent-free leasing treaty.

On May 19, 2004, after major reconstruction, the airport received its first commercial flight from Hanoi. It now handles all of Nha Trang's commercial flights, which previously headed to Nha Trang Airport. In 2007, Cam Ranh was upgraded to an international airport. In December, 2009 Cam Ranh International Airport was opened. The total invested capital is up to about 300 billion VND.

The airport resides at an elevation of 40 feet (12 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 02/20 with a concrete surface measuring 10,000 by 150 feet (3,048 × 46 m)

In 2007, Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung approved a zoning plan for construction of the airport until 2020 with a vision toward 2030.

It will also be expanded to provide 32 parking lots, receive as many as 27 aeroplanes during peak hours, welcome some 5.5 million passengers annually and handle 100,000 tonnes of cargo per year.
 
By 2030, the airport is expected to have 37 parking lots and be capable of receiving as many 37 planes during peak hours, up to eight million passengers annually and 200,000 tonnes of cargo per year.
 
Currently it has a VND200 billion international terminal that could receive 600 passengers per hour and includes lounges, registration areas, canteen, and souvenir shop meeting international standards.
