Cam Ranh International Airport (IATA: CXRICAO: VVCR) (Vietnamese: Sân bay Quốc tế Cam Ranh) is located on Cam Ranh Bay in Cam Ranh, a town in Khánh Hòa Province in Vietnam. It serves the city of Nha Trang, which is 30 km (16 NM) from the airport. This airport handled 4,858,362 passengers in 2016.[1]

History[edit]

Cam Ranh Airport was built by the United States Navy 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 approximately VND 300 billion.

The airport resides at an elevation of 40 feet (12 m) above mean sea level. The first runway designated 02/20 with a concrete surface measuring 10,000 by 150 feet (3,048 m × 46 m).[3] The second runway is under construction, it will open in 2018 with a concrete surface measuring 10,000 by 150 feet (3,048 m × 46 m).[5]
