Vietnamese government approves several airport projects.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) has completed a feasibility study on a proposed new terminal at Ho Chi Minh City's Tan Son Nhat Airport.
The terminal would cost USD220m and would have a capacity of between 8m and 10m passengers per year when it is completed in 2005, AsiaPulse reported. The CAAV apparently also has plans for a second new terminal once capacity surpasses 10m per year.
In other news, Vietnamese Prime Minister Phan Van Khai has approved the construction of a second runway at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi, and the government has also approved a plan to upgrade facilities at Da Nang Airport. The CAAV is apparently also planning a new terminal at the Da Nang airport so that it can handle up to 4m passengers per year.
