Saigon airport expansion

Minister of Transport Nguyen Van The asked for the publication of the Saigon airport expansion project

HCMC – The Ministry of Transport will coordinate with the HCMC government to publicize a plan to expand Tan Son Nhat International Airport next month, as announced during a meeting on key projects of the ministry on August 24.

Reporting on the progress of the airport expansion project, Nguyen Duy Lam, director of the Planning and Investment Department under the Ministry of Transport, said Airport Design and Construction Consultancy Co., Ltd, along with the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam, are preparing the plan. The Planning and Investment Department will next week propose the Ministry of Transport report to the Government the solutions, investment and roadmap needed to execute the airport expansion project.

Minister of Transport Nguyen Van The asked for the publication of the Saigon airport expansion project early next month so that T3 terminal can be quickly built. In addition, the project to develop functional areas at the north wing of the airport should be unveiled to attract investors interested in the project. At the end of March, the Government approved the Tan Son Nhat International Airport expansion project, worth some VND18 trillion (US$775.4 million). 

Accordingly, T3 terminal, with an annual capacity of 20 million passengers, will be built at the south end of the airport, where the current domestic and international terminals of the airport are located. After being expanded, the airport is expected to serve a maximum of 60 million passengers per year.

The southward expansion of Tan Son Nhat International Airport will help reduce the area of land for the project, as well as the terminal construction time and costs. If a new terminal is built in the north wing, its cost would be twice as much as the terminal in the south.

The airport’s north wing, where there now exists a golf course and military area, will be used to develop supporting facilities, including aircraft maintenance.

The Government has required quickly seeking investment capital and completing investment procedures, so that the new terminal could be up and running soon, to ensure the easing of the overload at the airport.

Hoi An ancient town

Hoi An Ancient Town is UNESCO heritage site, since 1990. Located in Vietnam, in the province of Quang Nam, only 30 km from Danang. Hoi An was known as a cargo harbor from the 15th to 19th century. Although the port of Hoi An was officially founded by Lord Nguyen in 1595, these areas have previously been inhabited at least 2200 years ago. Hoi An Ancient Town (會安) translates as "peaceful meeting place". In English and other European languages, the town was known historically as Faifo. This word is derived from Vietnamese Hội An phố (the town of Hội An), which was shortened to "Hoi-pho", and then to "Faifo". Originally, Hai Pho was a divided town with the Japanese settlement across the "Japanese Bridge" (16th-17th century). The bridge (Chùa cầu) is a unique covered structure built by the Japanese, the only known covered bridge with a Buddhist temple attached to one side. Hoi An port loses its shine when the European shipbuilding evolved and they were able to get into the Danang Bay by large merchant ships. Moreover, the Danang became the main port for trade in central Vietnam. Large merchant ships arrived from Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, United Kingdom and from America. The first Christian missionaries also visited the Hoi An, which made Hoi An the first city in Vietnam, that encountered Christianity.
