With investment of VND3 trillion (US$127.9 million), the corporation expects to build a new terminal, a new airport apron, upgrade and expand the current apron by 2020.
According to the ACV, the airport is currently overloaded at peak hours and the numbers of passengers, flights and goods transported through the airport are predicted to exceed its designed capacity. By upgrading and expanding the airport, connections between Nghe An province and other localities will be improved.
The new terminal will be able to receive 5 million passengers a year, raising the total annual capacity of the Vinh International Airport to 10 million passengers. Investors are currently working on the terminal’s design and a feasibility study.
To ensure the project stays on schedule, Nghe An authorities have committed to working with the ACV in necessary procedures, including land clearance.
The ACV has asked the Ministry of Transport to approve the project and allow the corporation to be the main investor.
