The Transport Ministry has asked Quang Binh Province in central Vietnam to work with the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) on land clearing to serve the development of passenger terminal T2 at Dong Hoi Airport in the province.

The ministry sent the demand to the People’s Committee of Quang Binh after funding issues linked to the construction of the passenger terminal T2 were resolved.

The ACV, which manages and operates the airport, and the Commission for the Management of State Capital at Enterprises (CMSC) last month announced that they earmarked a sufficient amount of capital to build the passenger terminal T2, the ministry said.

According to the airport’s detailed zoning plan toward 2030 that was approved by the head of the ministry in 2018, the airport is set to serve some three million passengers per year by 2030, adding that one more passenger terminal would be built south-east of the existing terminal.

The prime minister recently approved a national master plan on airport development in the 2021-30 period, with a vision toward 2050.

Under the master plan, the projected annual capacity of the Dong Hoi Airport is three million passengers by 2030 and five million ones by 2050.

Hence, the development of the passenger terminal T2 is aligned with the zoning plan of the airport, the ministry said.

Last year, the provincial administration sought the nod of the prime minister and the transport ministry to invest in and operate the airport with the participation of the private sector.

However, after learning that the investment backed by private sources would encounter legal issues, the provincial administration suggested that the ACV, as the airport’s management and operating unit, take charge of funding the construction of the passenger terminal T2.

Regarding the implementation of the project, the ministry urged the CSMC and ACV to facilitate preparations so that the investment in the project could be approved in October this year and site clearance could reach completion in the second quarter next year.

The provincial administration was told to closely work with the Ministry of National Defense and relevant agencies to complete necessary procedures to convert the land use purpose of a 10.6-ha plot of military-owned land at the airport to land for civil aviation.​
