Especially, the duty free business segment has already operated at 4 airports.

With most of the domestic routes being back to operation with a significant increase in flight frequency and passengers, a number of international routes from key markets such as Korea, Japan, and Europe.. has also recovered. Taseco Airs builds a 2022 plan with a total revenue of VND 632.7 billion and a pre-tax profit of VND 23.5 billion, increased sharply compared to 2021.
