Con Dao Airport is currently a level 3C airport and a level 2 military airport, meaning it can receive ATR72, F70, and equivalent aircraft with a capacity of 300,000 passengers per year.

Currently, Con Dao Airport is planned as a domestic airport for civilian and military use, with a capacity of 2 million passengers and 4,400 tons of cargo per year. The airport has a total of 8 parking positions.
