The Hoa Binh Construction and Real Estate Corporation (HBC) has won the contract for the first phase of the project to expand the T2 International Terminal of Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City.

The airport expansion will be conducted in two stages, with the initial stage set to expand the east wing of the terminal while the building in the west wing will start once the east part is fully operational.

Once the expansion is completed, Tan Son Nhat Airport will be capable of serving about 13 million passengers per year, up 3 million from the current capacity.

The contract, worth 0.6 trillion VND (27.5 million USD), is scheduled to finish in 417 days.

The HBC has constructed several projects, including the construction and expansion of Can Tho, Tan Son Nhat and Phu Quoc airports.-VNA
