THUA THIEN HUE – Passenger terminal T2 at the Phu Bai International Airport in the central province of Thua Thien Hue will be put into operation in November 2022 with a capacity of five million passengers per year.
The VND2,250-billion project, funded by the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV), will be completed one year later than the original plan due to the negative impacts of Covid-19, according to the Thua Thien Hue People’s Committee.
Specifically, the project has a total construction floor area of about 22,381 square meters; its design features the Hue royal architectural culture.
In the past two years, serious social distancing and the pandemic have caused difficulties in implementing the project. The other challenges are scarce raw materials, increasing prices, abnormal weather and heavy rains.
The project’s second floor (departure lounge) was completed on March 12. Work on the steel truss frame, the glass frame, the roof cover and the rainwater drainage system will be completed by September 2002, paving the way for the completion of the project in November.
On December 29, 2019, ACV cooperated with the Thua Thien Hue People’s Committee to hold a groundbreaking ceremony for passenger terminal T2.
