Phu Quoc International Airport (IATA: PQC, ICAO: VVPQ) is an international airport that serves Phú Quốc Island, in southern Vietnam. The airport covers nearly 900 hectares of land area in the commune of Dương Tơ, about 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) south of the administrative centre of Phú Quốc City. It is built at a cost of around VND 16.2 trillion (US$810 million) and is planned to be built in phases. The airport is 10 km from the previous Phu Quoc Airport, which it replaced. The airport was initially able to handle about 2.5 million passengers per annum, and the maximum capacity will be 7 million passengers per annum. The airport has a single runway, capable of handling aircraft like the Airbus A350 and Boeing 747.[2] The construction was completed in November 2012 and was put into operation on 2 December 2012.[3][4] The Government of Vietnam expects the airport to facilitate the arrival of international tourists who are attracted to the island's beaches.


Airports Corporation of Vietnam began construction of the airport on 23 November 2008 with an investment of VND 3,000 billion. It was designed by Singaporean-US design consulting firm CPG-PAE. After four years work the airport operated its inaugural flight on 15 December 2012.
