There are two main international airports in Vietnam : Hanoi (Noi Bai airport : HAN) and Ho Chi Minh (Tan Son Nhat airport : SGN).
As there are more flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Quy Nhon, it is more convenient to fly from foreign countries to Ho Chi Minh City than to Hanoi.

An indicative flight schedule will be posted here soon.

In order to welcome you and organize your transfert from Quy Nhon airport to the conference hotel, please inform the conference secretariat of your flight number as well as the date and the arrival time in Quy nhon.
Conference buses will be available at Quy Nhon airport on Sunday August 6 (morning and afternoon flights) and Monday August 7 (morning flights).

Hotel Hai Au : 489 An Duong Vuong Street, Quy Nhon, Binh Dinh province.
