ACV said that they will also bring these designs to display in Danang from December 16-25, Dong Nai from December 28 to January 11, 2017 and HCM City from January 13-23, 2017.
The nine designs were selected from a contest held recently by ACV to find the best design for the passenger terminal of the Long Thanh International Airport in the southern province of Dong Nai.
Contestants were required to design a passenger terminal with total floor space of around 400,000 square metres and handle 25 million passengers a year in the first phase. It should meet the requirements of the International Civil Aviation Organisation and the International Air Transport Organisation for services at leading airports around the world.
The passenger terminal should also be connected consistently with infrastructure facilities at the airport and in line with the approved master zoning plan for the multi-billion airport, which is envisioned becoming an aviation hub in Southeast Asia.
The long-awaited project is expected to start in 2019 with total investment amounting to USD16.03 billion. The project will be divided into three phases and is planned to handle 100 million passengers and 5 million tonnes of cargo a year.
The project will be financed by the State budget, official development assistance loans, capital contributed by enterprises, proceeds from equitisation of state-owned enterprises and other sources.
