HCMC – Work on the T3 terminal of the Tan Son Nhat International Airport in HCMC is expected to start in December this year, said Le Quyet Tien, deputy head of the Transport Engineering Construction and Quality Management Bureau under the Ministry of Transport.
Tien said the feasibility report for the T3 terminal project has been completed and is likely to be approved early next month, the local media reported.
However, the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV), the project’s investor, has yet to be handed over a 16-hectare land lot for the project in Tan Binh District’s Ward 4 from the Ministry of National Defense.
The government has earlier approved the T3 terminal project with an estimated investment of some VND10.99 trillion, sourced from the legal capital resources of ACV. The project is expected to be completed in 37 months.
Once in place, the terminal with a designed capacity of 20 million passengers a year will help ease the overload at the T1 terminal.
