The construction of the T3 domestic terminal at HCMC's Tan Son Nhat International Airport is set to finish in April 2025, two months ahead of schedule, in time for the Reunification Day holiday April 30.

According to Le Khac Hong, the head of the project management board, in order to shorten the schedule and bring the project to completion by April 30 next year, the investor and contractors are determined to intensify manpower, machinery, equipment, and construction efforts.

Currently, the consortium of contractors has mobilized over 400 motorized vehicles and nearly 2,000 engineers and workers, with 80% of the workload finished so far. The construction of various components is underway following the established schedule.

Covering a total construction area of 112,500 sq.m., the terminal is designed to have an annual capacity of 20 million passengers, with a scale of one basement floor and four above-ground ones. It is expected to help double Tan Son Nhat's operational capacity, thus reducing traffic congestion both inside and outside the currently overloaded airport.
