Terminal T2 - the international terminal at Da Nang International Airport in Da Nang City, central Vietnam - will restrict the number of non-travelers permitted to accompany passengers into the airport’s departures hall during peak hours due to a surge in passenger traffic.

Do Trong Hau, deputy general director of Da Nang International Terminal Investment and Operation Joint Stock Company (AHT), on Wednesday night announced that the restriction will take effect from December 10.

As per the new regulation, only passengers, airline employees, airport staff, and individuals authorized by competent authorities will be permitted to enter the airport’s departure hall.  

Those who are picking up or dropping off passengers will not be permitted entry.

AHT said it has put together a team to ensure only passengers enter through doors A and B on the airport’s second floor or take the elevator from the ground floor to the airport’s second floor.

Specialized support staff will be charged with ensuring that passengers who require assistance, such as the elderly, people with disabilities, and children, are appropriately aided.

Support staff will also be stationed at gate areas A and B to assist and guide passengers to check-in counters. 

These staff members will also help to ensure that check-in counters are appropriately manned so that traffic can flow steadily through the terminal.

According to Hau, the 'farewell limit' is part of a carefully-planned roadmap designed to prevent overcrowding, maintain safety, uphold public order, and ensure that passengers are able to efficiently navigate the airport.

“People departing for foreign countries are often accompanied by relatives, which can lead to congestion and safety issues in the terminal,” Hau explained. 

“Our approach to dealing with this issue was designed following recommendations from the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam and other relevant security and public order authorities. 

“Similar measures have been implemented at airports nationwide,” he added.

AHT anticipates a significant surge in passenger traffic at Da Nang International Airport terminals during the upcoming holiday season. 

The ongoing recovery of Da Nang’s tourism sector has led to a remarkable increase in both arriving and departing flights at the airport. 

Throughout 2023, the daily flight count frequently surpassed its 2022 peak of 150 flights per day, inevitably leading to congestion in the airport.
