“The fund is expected to use non-refundable aid from the French Government FASEP Fund,” he added.

The minister said ADPi, an airport architecture and technical design consulting company, selected by the French Government has been working on the project since mid-June this year.

ADPi will review the plan for Noi Bai Airport, which was approved by the Prime Minister in Decision No. 590/QD-TTg dated May 20, 2008 and propose an expansion plan to ensure compliance with the development of the airport, including construction investment and site clearance costs.

After ADPi’s proposal is approved by the competent authority (which is expected in the third quarter of next year), the ministry will direct relevant agencies and units to mark out construction boundaries in the five surrounding communes as planned.

From now to 2030, the Noi Bai Airport will have a third runway and passenger terminal with a capacity of 25 million passengers increasing the airport's total capacity to 50 million passengers by 2030.

After 2030, the fourth runway will be built, raising the total capacity of the airport to 90 million passengers. — VNS
