FLC Group has submitted a proposal to the Ministry of Transport for a new airline catering service processing area at Tan Son Nhat International Airport.

FLC said the ministry had already issued a decision to approve detailed planning for the airport by 2020 with an orientation to 2030.

According to the plan, the airport would have an airline catering service processing area together with a car parking area and an office building.

Bamboo Airways, a member company of FLC Group, launched its first flight on January 16, becoming the fifth airline in Viet Nam.

The airline now has 10 aircraft operating on 14 routes with 40 flights a day. It plans to expand its fleet to 40 this year with 37 routes.

The number of customers travelling by air has been increasing, pushing the demand for airline catering services.

“The airline catering service processing area would provide more choices to airlines which want to expand and diversify catering services,” the group said.

In Viet Nam, Noi Bai Catering Services (NCS) in the north and Viet Nam Aviation Catering Services (VACS) in the south are the only firms offering the service.

NCS’s financial report last year showed that it earned billions of dong a day by providing catering services to airlines. — VNS
