HCMC – Work on a project to build the T3 passenger terminal at the HCMC-based Tan Son Nhat International Airport is set to start in the second quarter of 2021 after its feasibility study is completed in late 2020.
The Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) as the project investor was asked to use its own capital to execute the project and is speeding up the process.
ACV General Director Vu The Phiet said that ACV had held a tender to select a technical consulting unit to complete the feasibility study. The project’s technical design is scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2021.
The terminal will be completed in 24 months, but the progress of construction will depend on site clearance.
To complete the project on schedule, ACV has proposed that the Ministry of National Defense and the HCMC authorities convert the land for the T3 passenger terminal from military to traffic land.
Earlier in May, the prime minister had signed a decision appointing ACV as the investor for the T3 passenger terminal project at the Tan Son Nhat International Airport at a total cost of some VND11 trillion and with a capacity of 20 million passengers per year.
Once in place, the T3 terminal will serve domestic flights at the airport, helping ease the burden on the T1 terminal and improve the quality of services at the airport.
