Lamphun Airport (IATA: VTCO) is located inside the area of the Saha Industrial Park. This airfield was designed to meet ICAO recommendations and is approved by the DOA. Lamphun Airfield, operated by the Sahaphatana Holding Co[1] is 20 kilometres (12 mi) south on the extended centreline of runway 36 at Chiang Mai International Airport. Runway 01/19 is level, well-graded laterite surface and usable even during the wet season.

The final approach from both directions is straightforward. There are high voltage electricity pylons less than 1 km south of runway 19 and several aerial masts 1345' AMSL to the 2 km NE of airfield. There are houses and trees close to threshold of runway 01 reducing the available landing distance on this runway.
