HANOI, Vietnam — State media reported that Vietnam has opened a new international airport in Can Tho, hoping to welcome more tourists to the country's southern Mekong Delta.

The Vietnam News on Monday said that service began on New Year's Day and the runway is now long enough to accommodate large, long-haul jets, such as the Boeing 777. The airport is designed to receive up to 5 million passengers a year.

The new terminal is an expansion of the domestic airport, which saw about 210,000 passengers last year. Vietnam has three other international airports in southern Ho Chi Minh City, the northern capital, Hanoi, and central Danang.
