Work on the terminal, the largest of its kind in Vietnam at 139,000sqm, began in December 2011 and was built by 1,300 workers who are currently putting on the finishing touches, according to Tuoi Tre.

 

Most of the funding ($504.27 million) for the structure that will accommodate 10-15 million passengers per year was provided by Japanese official development assistance (ODA) with the remainder coming from local sources.

The terminal will be inaugurated on December 25 when Vietnam Airlines flight VN661 departs for Singapore and will open to all international flights on December 31.
