Gia Lam Airport is a former military airfield outside Hanoi, Vietnam, which has been rebuilt as a domestic airport complementing the Noi Bai International Airport farther outside Hanoi. [1] During the Vietnam War, it was a fighter airfield and tactical fighter direction center.[2]

It will be part of a system of domestic airfields, capable of handling commuter jets, at a number of places familiar from the Indochinese revolution: Na San in Son La Province and Muong Thanh in Dien Bien Phu City of Lai Chau Province and Vinh Airport in Nghe An Province.
