Proposal to plan more terminal T3 at Da Nang airport
The People’s Committee of Da Nang City has just proposed the Ministry of Transport to adjust the planning of Da Nang airport, to build a new domestic terminal T3 with a capacity of 15 million passengers/year.
Da Nang City proposes to increase the passenger capacity of Da Nang airport to 25 million by 2030, an increase of 10 million compared to the present and reach 30 million by 2050.
To achieve the above goal, the airport needs to be extended to 3,190 m (currently 3,048 m); The apron will be expanded to the east with 73 positions, in the period after 2030, a new apron to the west will be built with 19 parking positions.
Regarding the passenger terminal, Da Nang proposed to keep the T2 terminal for international operation; expand T1 terminal to the southeast, connect with T2 terminal by bridge. After 2030, the city proposes to build the domestic terminal T3 to the southeast.
With the adjusted planning, the total investment capital needs, project management costs, and site clearance of Da Nang airport increased to nearly 31,000 billion VND.
Da Nang airport is the third largest in the country, after Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat, with an area of 85 hectares, a capacity of 10 million passengers per year, of which the international T2 terminal is 4 million, and the domestic T1 terminal is 6 million.
In 2019, the airport had 15.5 million passengers, making the terminal infrastructure overloaded. The Ministry of Transport has studied to expand the airport to 85.5 hectares, with a capacity of 25 million passengers by 2030.
