Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc has agreed to hire foreign consultants to consider the expansion of the Tan Son Nhat international airport in Ho Chi Minh City without limitation in land use planning.
Ho Chi Minh City has set up a special task force to look into the expansion of the Tan Son Nhat Airport and submit to the Government in early September, the city’s top leader has said.
Early last month the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam (CAAV) submitted plans to expand Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat Airport to the Ministry of Transport for approval.
Vietnam’s Ministry of Transport is seeking feedback on a plan to expand Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City.
The Ministry of Defence on February 21 signed the minutes on the handover of nearly 20 hectares of military land at Tan Son Nhat International Airport to the Transport Ministry to enable the airport expansion.
No plan for the Noi Bai International Airport expansion has yet been selected, Deputy Minister of Transport Nguyen Nhat said in a recent interview with Vietnam News Agency amidst public debate about the expansion, which is said to cost up to US$5 five billion.
