Recently, at Vinh Airport, Aviation Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) in collaboration with Nghe An Province celebrated the inauguration of the terminal and announced the plan that Vinh Airport becomes Vinh International Airport.

Vinh International Airport is located in Nghi Lien Commune, Vinh City, in Nghe An. The airport has a runway with sizes of 2,400mx 45m, ensuring to receive aircrafts of A320 - A321 or equivalent. Vinh Airport reaches 4C level according to standard code of International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). In recent years, Vinh Airport has developed with a high speed. It is believed that the project for constructing terminal at the airport started from April 2013 with high international technology. Vinh Airport terminal has an area of 11,706 m2, with architecture based on the idea of lotus and lotus leaves with four doors to aircrafts. The terminal can meet a capacity of 1000 passengers in rush hours, and 3 million passengers/year. In addition, this project also expands a parking area from four to seven positions. The area is guaranteed to receive aircrafts of A320 / 321 or others equivalent.

In addition, the road system layer (209 m long, and 9 to 14.5 m wide) is also constructed with more lanes for cars in and out. Garage is also expanded. The total investment of the project is about 1,200 billion dong with Aviation Corporation of Vietnam as an investor. According to Mr. Nguyen Nguyen Hung, Chairman of Board members of ACV, the airport's new terminal is invested with modern equipment and advanced international technology. The new terminal has a beautiful and modern architecture, and unique promotion of local culture with the idea of lotus and lotus leaf images. And, lotus has been known as National flower of Vietnam. Terminal in Vinh Airport has a unique design with 1st floor used to serve coming passengers and 2nd floor used to serve leaving passengers, along with modern equipment of 28 counters, business class lounge, commercial services, utility services to serve passengers, support services for people with disabilities, the elderly and people with difficulty in moving.

The inauguration of terminal and put into operation three large works in Vinh Airport (passenger terminal, airport road and car park floor, expanded aircraft parking) is very important to Vinh City, Nghe An province in particular and the system  of airports in Vietnam in general. This work not only creates a modern and new look, an accentuated point in the urban landscape for the Vinh City, but also is beneficial for the movement of people in the province, other provinces, and international and domestic visitors. Furthermore, Vinh International Airport not only solves the overload of the old terminal, expands the ability to exploit and improve business efficiency, security safe, and provides services and advanced facilities for better passenger service, but also contributes actively to promoting social and economic development, tourism and investment in Nghe An, and in North Central provinces.
