FLC Group, Owner of Bamboo Airways, Wants to Build Tan Son Nhat's 3rd Terminal

In January 2019, the Airports Corporations of Vietnam (ACV) submitted their proposal for the construction of the third terminal at Tan Son Nhat airport, anticipating that contractors finalize in February 2020.

Recently, the corporate giant FLC group announced that they also sent the Ministry of Transport and the government office its proposal to build a third terminal at Tan Son Nhat Airport, VnExpress reports. They shared their wish to invest in the new terminal as it is to better serve the group's newly established carrier Bamboo Airways.

In the proposal, FLC Group expresses confidence that it can finish the project in just one year.

"With a team of prestigious and experienced engineers, contractors, domestic and international partners that FLC possesses, the completion of T3 within a year is completely feasible," said Trinh Van Quyet, FLC board chairman.

If permitted, the construction will proceed according to the new construction plan that was approved by the transport ministry September last year. The new terminal will increase the airport's capacity from 25 million passengers per year to 45 million passengers per year. 

This is not the first time FLC Group had shown interest in upgrading airports as part of the group's business strategy. In April 2018, FLC's proposal to upgrade Dong Hoi Airport into an international airport got approved by Quang Binh authorities.
