The Vietur consortium led by Turkey’s IC Ictas has won the VND35 trillion (US$1.5 billion) bidding package to construct the passenger terminal at Long Thanh International Airport in southern Dong Nai Province, the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV), the investor of the project, said on Thursday evening.

ACV said it announced the bidding results on the national bidding portal and to all contractor consortiums registering to bid for package 5.10, belonging to the third component—essential facilities, on the same day.

Vietur consists of IC Istas, a subsidiary of Turkey’s IC Holdings, and nine Vietnamese firms— Ricons Construction Investment JSC, Newtecons Investment Construction JSC, SOL E&C Investment Construction JSC, ATAD Steel Structure Corporation, Construction Corporation No. 1 JSC, HAWEE Mechanical and Electrical JSC, Vietnam Construction and Import-Export Joint Stock Corporation, Phuc Hung Holdings Construction JSC, and Hanoi Construction Corporation.

Vietur won the package at a price of over VND27.8 trillion ($1.2 billion) and $338,800. It planned to complete the package within 39 months.

The ACV asked Vietur to contact it to sign a contract between August 25 and 30.

Work on the package will start right after the signing of the contract.

The 5.10 is the largest package requiring the most complicated techniques and the longest execution time of the third component of the Long Thanh International Airport project.

The ACV planned to kick off the passenger terminal package and another to build runways and an aircraft parking area at Long Thanh International Airport with a combined approved cost of over VND7.3 trillion ($306.2 million) late this month.

Three consortiums, including Vietur, Hoa Lu led by Vietnamese construction firm Coteccons, and another led by a Chinese contractor, had earlier registered to bid for the passenger terminal package.

After the ACV announced that only Vietur met all technical requirements for package 5.10, Hoa Lu denounced the Vietur consortium for allegedly violating bidding regulations and failing to fulfill the requirements of the tender package.

ACV Chairman Lai Xuan Thanh has recently affirmed the transparency and fairness of choosing the winning consortium.

He also pledged to complete the project as planned and put it into operation by the last quarter of 2026.

Long Thanh International Airport, once completed, will be the largest airport in the nation with an annual capacity of 100 million passengers and five million metric tons of cargo.

The project needs an estimated investment of some VND336.63 trillion ($14.1 billion).
