[Video] Waterfall and Indoor Gardens: Inside Long Thanh Airport's Terminal 1

The construction of the airport is expected to kickstart next year to meet urgent air travel demand.

In 2018, the Long Thanh project’s main investor Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) announced that they have chosen South Korean design firm Heerim Architectures and Planners to be the airport’s official architecture partner.

Heerim’s design concept centers around lotus petals, with the terminal ceiling resembles a blooming lotus. The architecture firm has now released a video providing a sneak peek of the airport’s Terminal 1 interior.

During a meeting on Monday, August 5, representatives from the Ministry of Transport also urged Dong Nai officials to speed up the site clearance and compensation process to hand over the land for the airport by no later than August 2020 in order to start construction on time, reports VietnamNet. Dong Nai authorities report good progress on site clearance, with minor difficulties due to some landowners being absent for land assessment and compensation settlements.

The project will result in 4,800 households and 26 organizations being relocated. This means that around 15,500 people will be affected, 70% of whom are farmers with the rest mostly rubber plantation workers.
