The US$163 million international passenger terminal has been designed to mimic a bird’s nest, a common sight in Khanh Hoa Province.
Vietnam’s Cam Ranh International Airport has recently opened a new US$163 million international passenger terminal following 19 months of construction.
Built to ease overcrowding at Terminal 1, newly inaugurated Terminal 2 will increase the airport’s capacity for an additional eight million passengers per year, 4.8 million more than it handled in 2017.
Overall, the new terminal gives the airport capacity for 4.8 million more passengers than it handled last year. This may, the airport welcomed more than 30 international flights per day, most of which were from Russia, China, and South Korea.
The newly built terminal will also serve additional flights from Singapore, Thailand, and Japan, along with new domestic routes from destinations such as Phu Quoc.
The Vietnamese airport has been designed by Singapore-based architecture firm CPG Consultants to mimic a bird’s nest–a sight commonly found in the country’s Khanh Hoa Province.
Spread across two stories, the new facility takes up a total of 52,000 square meters of floor space.
Other new developments are also in the pipeline for Nha Trang, including Long Beach, named for an eight-kilometer-long strip of sand located about five minutes’ drive away from the airport.
More than 30 hospitality projects have been planned for the strip, including the 800-hectare KN Paradise, which is a mixed-use resort with a number of hotels and entertainment options. Among these are the 572-room Wyndham Grand Hotel and the Greg Norman-designed KN Golf Links Cam Ranh golf course, both of which are expected to open next month.
