HCM CITY – Tân Sơn Nhất International Airport in HCM City on Tuesday opened an 11,351 sq-metre, seven-storey parking garage located outside the domestic terminal.
The TCP Joint-Stock Company said the modern parking garage, which has a basement, a ground floor and five floors, can hold more than 6,000 motorbikes and 1,742 cars.
The ground and first floors are for motorbikes, and the second to fifth floors are for cars.
At least 239 other vehicles such as coaches and taxicabs can park outside the garage.
“The new parking garage will help ease traffic congestion around the airport and meet visitors’ parking demand,” an airport representative said.
Phạm Văn Châu, vice director of the company, said the garage was equipped with a smart fire system that automatically determines the affected area and discharges water in case of fire.
Estimated parking fees are VNĐ5,000 (US$0.22) per eight hours for motorbikes and VNĐ20,000 (US$0.8) per 30 minutes for cars. – VNS
