New gate­way to Nha Trang

Business Traveller (Asia-Pacific) - - UPFRONT -

A NEW US$163 mil­lion in­ter­na­tional pas­sen­ger ter­mi­nal has opened at Cam Ranh In­ter­na­tional Air­port. The south­ern Viet­namese air­port pro­vides easy ac­cess to the sea­side city of Nha Trang, an idyl­lic coastal re­gion pop­u­lar for div­ing, is­land hop­ping and beaches that saw 5.5 mil­lion ar­rivals last year – well be­yond the air­port’s ca­pac­ity. Cur­rently the air­port han­dles more than 30 in­ter­na­tional flights per day, most of which come from China, Rus­sia and South Korea. The new ter­mi­nal will in­crease ca­pac­ity to eight mil­lion pas­sen­gers a year, with a new run­way also un­der way. Sin­ga­pore-based ar­chi­tec­ture firm CPG Con­sul­tants are be­hind the de­sign, which mim­ics a bird’s nest com­monly found in Khanh Hoa prov­ince. The new fa­cil­ity is spread across two storeys, cover­ing a to­tal of 52,000 sqm of floor space. viet­na­mair­port.vn
