HCMC – A project to expand the T2 international passenger terminal of the Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi from the current capacity of 10 million to 15 million passengers per year will need an estimated VND4.98 trillion.
The capital for the project would be sourced from the legal funding sources of the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV).
ACV has submitted the feasibility study for the project to the Transport Engineering Construction and Quality Management Bureau under the Transport Ministry, Tuoi Tre Online newspaper reported.
The feasibility study was conducted by a consortium comprising Japan Airport Consultants, Inc. and Vietnam National Construction Consultants.

Work on the project is expected to start in the last quarter of next year and be completed in the third quarter of 2024.
