HCMC – The Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) has proposed building a second runway for the Long Thanh International Airport after the first runway is put into service.

ACV is considering utilizing an estimated VND4 trillion saved during the implementation of the first phase of the Long Thanh airport project to fund the construction of the second runway.

Earlier this year, following a review of the management and use of investment capital in component 3 of the first phase of the project, the State Audit of Vietnam (SAV) recommended constructing the second runway once the first phase is operational.

SAV emphasized the importance of ensuring the uninterrupted operation of the Long Thanh airport in case of incidents or malfunctions on the first runway.

The first phase of the Long Thanh International Airport project requires a total of nearly VND110 trillion. ACV is responsible for essential items within the airport under the third component, valued at VND9 trillion.

For the construction of the passenger terminal, ACV has selected the VIETUR consortium as the contractor, and work on the project began on August 31, 2023.

According to Vu The Phiet, general director of ACV, most of the project packages are meeting timeline requirements.

The first runway can be completed by April 30 next year, with work on taxiways and parking facilities expected to be finished by June 2025.
