The new facility, located in Hải Châu District, five km from the city’s center, has total investment capital of nearly VND1.35 trillion (about US $64 million).
Đà Nẵng International Airport is the third-largest airport in Việt Nam Nam and the largest in the central region. It now serves 20 domestic and international flight routes with about 1,500 passengers per day.
Early this October, Transport Minister Đinh La Thăng suspended the chief of the airport’s terminal project management board for slow construction during the minister’s inspection at the airport.
Work had been accelerated since then.
