Da Nang Airport Welcomes New International Terminal

From now on, passengers on international flights to or from Da Nang will enjoy the comfort of a brand-new terminal.

According to Tuoi Tre, the new T2 terminal at Da Nang International Airport officially went into operation on Tuesday, May 9. The new facility includes 40 check-in counters, 42 immigration gates and ten more departure gates to accommodate approximately six million passengers annually.

A handful of major airlines based in Vietnam have already moved their flights and services to the new terminal, including Vietnam Airlines (VNA) and Jetstar Pacific.

VNA said on Tuesday that all of its international flights will make use of the new facility, including 22 check-in counters on the second floor and several baggage carousels on the first floor of the building.

Da Nang’s aerodrome welcomed its first international terminal on December 25, 2011, with a capacity to handle 4.5 to five million passengers every year.
