Da Nang Authorities Urged to Approve 3rd Terminal for City Airport

In 2018, the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) proposed building another terminal at Da Nang International Airport in order to meet the airport's future capacity demands.

The Da Nang People's Committee has now submitted a request to the Ministry of Transport urging for the proposed plan to be approved. The ACV is also urging relevant agencies to approve its detailed proposal for the third terminal so that construction can finish by 2030, Tuoi Tre reports.

According to Le Xuan Tung, ACV deputy general, with the third terminal installed, Da Nang's airport capacity will be increased to 28 million passengers and 200,000 metric tons of cargo. The total investment cost of the project is VND9 trillion (US$391 million).

The current total design capacity of the city airport's two existing terminals is 13 million passengers per year. In 2018, the number of passengers the airport received annually surpassed this figure, thanks to the rise of tourism in the city.

“The airport hosts 23 flights each day and grows 30% annually. Meanwhile, the development of airlines, including VietJet Air, Jetstar Pacific and Bamboo Airways, and tourism properties in the city have strongly lured foreign investment in recent years,” said Tung.
