The construction work at the international terminal of Cam Ranh International Airport in Khanh Hoa province is expected to finish by March next year, an official said.

Phan Le Hoan, director of Cam Ranh International Terminal JSC, said the terminal would be operational by July, thanks to the credit loan of more than VND2.98 trillion from Vietcombank and Vietinbank six months ago.

The construction began in September 2016 with an estimated investment capital of VND3.73 trillion, 80 per cent of which was to come from the two banks.

As planned, the project’s first phase will finish by the end of the first quarter next year, with the capacity to serve 2,000 passengers during rush hours and four million passengers per year. However, owing to the prolonged rainy season last year and the lack of capital, the construction process was delayed by two months.

The company has carried out more than half of the work of the first phase, including the two-storey terminal with a total area of 50,000sq.m. The construction work for the car parking area and the apron for wide-body aircrafts is being carried out now.

In the first half of this year, the airport received nearly three million passengers, a year-on-year increase of 31 per cent, of which, more than 1.6 million passengers were foreigners. The airport expects to welcome six million passengers this year.

The province invested more than VND1.9 trillion in building runway No. 2 for the airport, which is scheduled to be operational by the middle of next year. — VNS
