Vietnam is considering the installation of slot machines inside its international airport terminals to make them more attractive for travellers.

The idea moved a step forward when Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung on Friday agreed in principle to equip the airports servicing international flights with the gaming machines as part of attempts to improve services, Tuoi Tre News reported.

He handed the task to the Finance Ministry to discuss the plan with other cabinet ministers to gain their support and turn the idea into law. Some airports around the world already have gaming machines for passengers to pass the time time when their flights are delayed or cancelled, the newspaper quoted the ministry as saying.

The state-owned Airports Corporation of Vietnam, which administers all airports in the country, will be responsible for the project once it gets the stamp of approval. Slot machines will be put in international airports only in designated areas for foreigners and Vietnamese passengers on international flights.

Vietnam has eight international airports and the two main gateways are Tan Son Nhat serving Ho Chi Minh City and Noi Ban for Hanoi.
