Dien Bien Phu Airport (IATADINICAOVVDB) (VietnameseSân Bay Điện Biên Phủ) is located at Điện Biên Phủ in Vietnam.

 

History[edit]

Điện Biên Phủ Airport was established in 1954 as Mường Thanh Airfield. The main purpose of it is to serve the French HQ in Điện Biên Phủ at the time of the First Indochina War.

4 years after the French left Điện Biên Phủ, in 1958, commercial flights to the airport started, operated by the Air Force, but only for a while due to the low demand at the time. In 1984, along with the 30th Anniversary of the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, flights from Hanoi to Điện Biên Phủ resumed, operated by the Antonov An-24. 10 months later, in January 30th 1995, this route is once again suspended because of the runway needed to be repaired. After the repair, flight resumed, this time being operated by the ATR 72. In 2004, the airport's apron is extended to 12000 square meters, with 4 parking stands for ATR 72 aircraft.

Facilities[edit]

Today, Điện Biên Phủ Airport is the largest and only commercial airport serving the city of Điện Biên Phủ in particular and the entire Northwest region of Vietnam, after the closure of Nà Sản Airport in 2004. It is located in the middle of a basin at an altitude of 1.611 meters above sea level. The sole runway (16/34) has a concrete surface and a length 1830 meters (6003 ft) long and width of 30m (98.4 ft), large enough to accommodate aircraft such as the ATR 72 or the Fokker F70 and potentially the Embraer E190 and E195 with some payload restrictions as demonstrated by Bamboo Airways' use of the jets at Con Dao Airport, which has a similar-length runway.

The apron and taxiway is 7500 square meters wide, with 4 parking stands for aircraft. The terminal is 2500 square meters wide and is capable of serving 4 flights per day.

Challenges[edit]

Due to its geographical position, the airport's runway cannot be extended to serve larger aircraft such as the Airbus A320 familyBoeing 737 and similar. The installation of night lights and modern guidance systems is also not possible due to the atmospheric and weather conditions at the airport, render it only capable of serving daytime flights. Also, the cancel rate of flights to Dien Bien Phu is also higher than other routes, due to the unpredictable and inclement nature of the weather at the airport.

And due to its short runway and the aircraft type serving it, the airport can only serve short-haul routes, such as Hanoi- Dien Bien Phu or Hai Phong-Dien Bien Phu.

Customer Reviews
NORTHERN SKY STUDIO - JUNEAU INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Darren
Scenery is very nice however its missing the very prominent curved/angled approach lights onto runway 8. This is a major feature at Juneau and the lights are essential for terrain clearance on approach to runway 8 so leaving these out is a pretty major omission hence the score of 4 not 5.
BORIS AUDIO WORKS - CIRRUS SR-22 SOUND SET - MSFS
Farhad
Fantastic! For pilots that precision is important in all aspects, that is indispensable. I hope the developers make the same sound change for other planes, especially passenger planes.
RKBRIDGER - FLORIDA WEST COAST BRIDGES MSFS
Mark
Another excellent bridge package from the author. With 66 bridges, the improved water masks and Tampa's container port getting cranes, this is a complete package. Highly recommended for anyone flying in southern Florida.
FSDG - BREMEN MSFS
Tobias
Wonderful Scenery. Best rendition of Bremen so far for me, good FPS, good modeling and textures, good details. I can recommend this Add-On.
RDPRESETS - EHRD ROTTERDAM V2 AIRPORT MSFS
Magnus
RDPresets did a good job on this one like their other sceneries. Got EHRD together with the PMDG 737 which is a great combi for many great flights. Great performance and night lighting, highly recommended.
SOUTH OAK CO - TRAFFIC IN SIGHT - CENTRAL USA MSFS
Chris
Above Denver Intl and Aspen, dozens of helicopters. It's too dense and random traffic. They are flying like flies. I'm waiting for the patch. Above New York with other traffic in sight addition traffic is perfect.
RDPRESETS - LIRN NAPLES INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT MSFS
Magnus
Love this airport, Great details with very good performance/FPS with my cheap PC. Went to Naples in real life this summer, looks exactly the same, Highly recommend this airport. Got it from the RD website on day 1. 1 word: Bellissimo

Good work, I hope there will be a military airport in the future.

An important airport and the day scenery is great, but a little dissappoited with night lighting of the terminal e.g.the yellowish window looked like painting - hope developer can improve on this aspect.
FEELTHERE - KRDU - RALEIGH DURHAM INTL AIRPORT MSFS
Keonte
This scenery needs to be updated majorly. As a former airline employee at KRDU this does not make me feel there at all. "The back yard" is too small, entrance to baggage and canopy to go under between the back yard and front of term 2 is nit there. the ground traffic roadway is too large making gates really short. All gate positions need to be reconsidered. The RON parking is not there on both sides of Terminal 2. Terminal 1 does not at all resemble at the work they did to upgrade. They are building a new runway next to 05L/23R which will the new 05L/23r. There are people walking around in circles in common clothing which does not make sense. Although I could complain about the modeled building for term2 I can actually deal with it. But what kills the immersion for me are the items described above. I am happy I can taxi without destroying the my aircraft with all the bumps from the default scenery.
