Cam Ranh Airport[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.

Cam Ranh International Terminal 2[edit]

The International Terminal (T2) was officially put into operation on June 30, 2018 after 19 months of construction with a total investment capital of 3.735 billion. Developed and managed by Cam Ranh International Terminal (CRTC) Joint Stock Company, the T2 project came about at a time to inject much needed capacity into the airport operating infrastructure. At the same time, facilities and services were upgraded to match international standards.

Terminal 2 serves more than 80 flights per day at peak season, processing up to 14,500 passengers on a given busy day. CRTC has embarked on capacity enhancement works to further increase its handling capabilities to match to the phenomenal growths. In 2018, T2 serves 21 international airlines with a total of 5.2 million international passengers, the fourth largest airport in Vietnam in terms of international passenger volume.



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 2019 with a concrete surface measuring 10,000 by 150 feet (3,048 m × 46 m).[8]

Terminal 2[edit]

T2 covers a total area of 50,500 sqm, made up of dedicated levels for departure and arrival processing; the terminal building has a unique architecture inspired by the shape of a swallow's nest, native to the Khanh Hoa Province, and the waves of Nha Trang Bay - a signature representation of the South Central Coast. T2 has 4 aerobridges and 10 boarding gates, as well as advanced equipment systems supplied by prestigious international companies.
