HCMC – Deputy Prime Minister Le Van Thanh has approved a plan to develop passenger terminal T2 at the Cat Bi international airport in Haiphong City at a total cost of VND2.4 trillion.
The new passenger terminal project, whose investor will be the Airports Corporation of Vietnam, would have an annual capacity of five million passengers and operate for 50 years, the local media reported.
Under the plan, the construction of the project will be executed in 18 months from the date of cleared land being handed over.
The project includes support components, such as a technical facility, tunnels, parking lots, a wastewater treatment station, a fee collection station, fences and lighting and drainage systems.
The municipal government is in charge of site clearance and inspecting the construction and capital mobilization processes.
After terminal T2 is completed, it will be used as a domestic terminal, while passenger terminal T1 will serve as an international one.
The northern city proposed building passenger terminal T2 and a cargo terminal for the Cai Bi airport in 2018 as terminal T1 was overloaded.
The airport handles four-five million passengers a year.
