HCMC – Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh has required the investor to finish the remaining work and put the new terminal at the Phu Bai International Airport into operation by the end of April to serve the rising travel demand during the upcoming holiday.

PM Chinh inspected the construction progress of Terminal 2 at Phu Bai International Airport on March 24 during his visit to the central province of Thua Thien-Hue.

He also asked the investor to prepare human resources and test operate the terminal before officially putting it into service.

The Terminal 2 project at Phu Bai International Airport requires over VND2.2 trillion, with the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) serving as the project owner.

It has a floor area of around 22,380 square meters and is expected to serve five million passengers annually, including four million domestic and one million international passengers.

Work on the terminal started in August 2021 and is currently 95% complete.

The project management board is urging the contractors to complete the remaining work, install interior furnishing items and equipment in the terminal, and carry out test operations.

The terminal is expected to be put into operation as scheduled in April.

Built in 1940, the Phu Bai International Airport currently serves both military and civilian purposes. ACV invested nearly VND700 billion in repairing and upgrading the airport in 2013.

The Phu Bai Airport’s current terminal has a design capacity of 1.5 million passengers per year.
