Noi Bai International Air Port
Terminal 2 (T2) is the new terminal of Noi Bai International Airport, the biggest airport in northern Vietnam. This project is funded through a Japanese ODA loan with the estimated investment of approximately ¥70bn ($900m).
The construction of T2 started in 2011 by Vietnam’s Ministry of Transport and North Airport Corporation (NAC). A joint venture between Taisei Corporation and Vinaconex (Vietnam) was responsible for the construction of T2, while the construction activities were supervised by Japan Airport Consultants. This new terminal is a four-storied building with a floor area of approximately 139,216m². It features 96 check-in counters, ten self-service kiosks, 17 boarding gates and 283 information display systems at all necessary positions, including public lobby, check-in counter, waiting room, boarding gate and baggage conveyer.
T2 terminal included the construction of main building and two wings. The construction began in December 2011 and took 34 months for completion. The first phase of construction will continue until 2020 and will enable the terminal to accommodate ten million passengers a year, while the second phase (between 2020 and 2030) will increase the capacity further to 15 million passengers a year.
The Inauguration Ceremony to celebrate Terminal 2, Noi Bai Airport Open was held together with Nhat Tan Bridge Open on 4th January, 2015. T2 terminal was completed on time, making the terminal a new international entry point to Hanoi and Vietnam.
