Vietnam aims to develop air transport, but must expand the network, IATA

A quarter of Vietnam's trade in value is transported by air, and the International Air Transport Association (IATA) expects the country to become the fastest growing aviation market in the world. Gender over the next three years, growing by 6.6% a year.

But the heavy reliance on regional connections and the lack of adequate airport infrastructure are hampering the emergence of emerging Southeast Asian nuclear power plants. Asian regional routes dominate the Vietnamese air transport market, with direct connections to Europe and Australia, and there are no unrestricted North American connections.

In a speech in Hanoi on Vietnam Airlines Day, IATA Secretary General Tony Tyler said that the availability of infrastructure is important to support the development of the aviation industry. He noted that Vietnam ranks 82nd in the Global Competitiveness Forum's Infrastructure Report Global Infrastructure Report. Of the 10 ASEAN countries, Vietnam ranks sixth.

It is encouraging to see that the Vietnamese government has given priority to improving it. This is positive, "Tyler said.


The Vietnamese government recently announced an ambitious aviation master plan to have 26 airports operational by 2020. Expanding programs are underway at Hanoi's Noi Bai International Airport. And at Ho Chi Minh International Airport.

He said: "These expansion activities will provide the necessary capacity to support aviation growth, and when Long Thanh Airport is ready it will provide a much needed boost for Ho Chi Minh City. Chí Minh.

The Government of Vietnam has also announced plans to open several airports for foreign investment and management, as well as privatize Vietnam Airports Corporation.

Vietnam has been a significant sponsor for the production shift away from China, and companies such as Intel, LG Electronics, Nokia and Samsung have set up production facilities in the country. It has been reported that by 2015, more than 40 percent of Samsung's smartphones will be made in Vietnam.

Tyler says the technology industry is an important contributor to the economy, and it is important that airfreight processes are as efficient as possible.

He said that e-freight would help improve the efficiency of aviation by replacing electronic paper processes. IATA has been trying to improve the value proposition of the aviation industry to prevent a change in customer mode of shipping with cheaper ocean freight, and paperless documents will Promote quality improvement.

"An important step to implementing e-freight is e-airbill (e-AWB). Vietnam Airlines is benefiting from the efficiency of e-AWB and has made it for domestic freight. However, it is impossible to do so for international transportation because Vietnam has not yet ratified the Montreal Convention 99 (MC99), "Tyler said.

He explained that the MC99 provides a legal framework for the use of "electronic transport documents", paving the way for forwarders and airlines to use e-AWB. "Given the importance of aviation, I urge Vietnam to urgently approve the MC99 so that it can achieve greater efficiency in Vietnam's air transport sector," he said.
