The corporation and the provincial People’s Committee agreed on a plan to implement the project as part of the national transport development scheme.

The terminal will be built to serve 5 million passengers per year, including one million foreigners. 

The project is set to be completed by December 2020 after 18 months of construction.

To ensure the progress of the project, the ACV asked Thua Thien-Hue to focus on land clearance. The deadline to hand over land to start the construction of the terminal and supporting facilities is the second quarter of 2019.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Phan Ngoc Tho said the province will focus on clearing land in Phu Bai, Thuy Tan and Thuy Phu communes in Huong Thuy town to expand the airport.

Phu Bai international airport strives to welcome 3-3.5 million passengers by 2020 and some 6.5-7 million passengers by 2025.

The airport is now able to serve 1.5 million passengers per year and is often overloaded.

In 2017, the airport received 1.75 million passengers. The annual average passenger growth rate is 15 percent.
