The big-ticket airport project has fallen behind schedule due to slow site clearance progress, with the southern province of Dong Nai handing over 1,284 out of 1,810 hectares needed for the first phase to the Southern Airport Authority.

Deputy PM Le tasked provincial People’s Committee to hand over 1,810 hectares of cleared land by February this year as committed.

Covering an area of 5.000 hectares, the Long Thanh airport is a key national project with total investment capital of US$16 billion.

The first phase involves construction of one runway with a length of 4km, taxiways, an apron, and a passenger terminal with other auxiliary works to serve 25 million passengers and 1.2 million tons of cargo each year.
