A new international terminal has been put into operation at the international airport in the central Vietnamese city of Da Nang.

Several major carriers in Vietnam have begun operating flights and services at the new T2 terminal of the Da Nang International Airport on Tuesday.

The new facility includes 40 check-in counters, 42 counters at immigration for exit and entry procedures, along with ten additional departure gates, according to airport management.

The new venue is expected to serve some six million passengers per year.

In a recent announcement, national carrier Vietnam Airlines (VNA) said that all of its international flights would now operate from the new terminal, beginning on Tuesday.

VNA will occupy 22 check-in counters on the second floor of the facility, while baggage carousels and information desks for lost luggage will be arranged in a separate area on the ground floor.

A representative of low-cost airliner Jetstar Pacific said that all of its international flights would also move to the new terminal as of Thursday.

Vietjet currently has no international flights from Da Nang.

The first international terminal at Da Nang airport was inaugurated on December 25, 2011, with an annual capacity of 4.5 to five million passengers.
