ĐÀ NẴNG — Construction of a new terminal at Đà Nẵng International Airport is due to be completed in March 29.
The terminal will serve delegates to meetings held within the framework of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Year 2017.
The VNĐ3.5 trillion (US$154 million) project will be put into trial operation from April to September before being officially inaugurated to serve the high-level APEC Week in November 2017.
The project, which is among the city’s key infrastructure projects to celebrate the city’s liberation day, has three main components - an international passenger terminal, an overpass and a parking area.
Beside these facilities, the Vietnam Airlines Corporation is also investing in a VIP lounge at the airport, which aims to serve high-level delegations to Đà Nẵng, especially those attending APEC meetings.
Deputy director of Đà Nẵng International Airport Management Board Hoàng Việt Hà said with more than 1,000 workers at the construction site, contractors have to date completed some 80 per cent of the work.
With the construction begun in November 2015, the 48,000sq.m terminal has a designed capacity of four million passengers per year by 2025 and provides parking space for over 400 automobiles. — VNS
