Authorities in Da Nang City, central Vietnam have proposed the construction of an additional terminal with the capacity of 15 million passengers a year at the city’s international airport.

The municipal People’s Committee said on Monday it had submitted a report to the Ministry of Transport requesting appraisal and approval of the adjustment plan of Da Nang International Airport in the 2021-30 period, with a vision to 2050. 

During the 2012-19 period, the number of passengers at the airdrome increased by an average of 23 percent a year, said Le Trung Chinh, chairman of the Da Nang administration.

The throughput of passengers and cargo has exceeded the forecast and continues to increase rapidly. 

The runways began to deteriorate due to overload, with the main runway 35R/17L often suffering damage, Chinh elaborated.

The domestic and international terminals were also overwhelmed, and the small cargo terminals could not meet the exploitation demand. 

There is also an urgent need to build aircraft repair workshops of airlines.

The Da Nang People's Committee believed it is necessary to increase the airport’s capacity to 25-30 million passengers a year to meet the exploitation of modern aircraft.

According to this proposed plan, Da Nang International Airport is a level-4E airport according to the regulations of the International Civil Aviation Organization and a level-one military airport.

The passenger transport volume will reach 25 million passengers a year by 2030, and 30 million passengers per year by 2050. 

The cargo output will climb to 200,000 metric tons a year.

To meet this goal, Da Nang International Airport needs a new runway with a size of 3,190x45 meters, as well as an apron expansion.

The plan also highlights the construction of a new domestic terminal with a capacity of 15 million passengers a year and renovation of the current domestic terminal.

The new cargo terminals and air logistics area will also be built.

The mobilization of investment capital will be divided into three phases, with a total cost of about VND31 trillion (US$1.2 billion).
