The PM agreed to choose the plan proposed by the French consultant company ADPI. The terminal, constructed to meet international standards, is expected to serve 20 million passengers per year and increase the capacity of Tan Son Nhat International Airport to welcome 50 million passengers per year by 2025.

A cargo terminal, an aircraft maintenance station and other projects serving for other aviation activities will be built in the airport’s northern area.

The plan may handle overload in air transport, ensure effective land use and reduce investment costs and guarantee safety and security in line with regulations of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

The Ministry of Transport will direct the ADPI to continue working with the Vietnamese relevant agencies to complete the adjustment of the expansion plan, ensuring efficiency, especially in land use in the north and the south of the airport and work with the Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee to launch feasible measures to reduce traffic jams around the airport.

He assigned the Ministry of National Defense to work with the Ministries of Transport and Natural Resources and Environment and the city’s People’s Committee to review the use of land for defense purpose in areas around the airport and relocate camps of military units to adjust the defense land use plan.
