After 19 months of construction, the new terminal T2 was put into use to ease the serious overloading of Terminal 1. It is the first airport terminal in Vietnam to be built upon 4-star international standards.

Speaking at the launching ceremony, Minister of Transport Nguyen Van The underlined the importance of transport infrastructure to investment attraction and socio-economic development. 

The operation of the new international terminal will not only reduce burden for Cam Ranh International Airport, which has been overloaded for years, but also improve the infrastructure of the airport, he said, adding that the second runway of the airport is under construction and scheduled to be operational at the end of this year.

The three-story terminal sits on a site of over 50.000 m2 and takes the shape of a swallow’s nest – a specialty and symbol of Khanh Hoa. It is capable of serving 2.4 – 4.5 million passengers each year and after the second phase completes, its capacity can reach 6 – 8 million passengers per year by 2030.
