Several major carriers in Viet Nam have begun operating flights and services at the new T2 terminal of the Da Nang International Airport on Tuesday.
The new facility includes 40 check-in counters, 42 counters at immigration for exit and entry procedures, along with 10 additional departure gates, according to airport management.
The new terminal is expected to serve some 6 million passengers per year.
A spokeperson from the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines (VNA) said that all of VNA’s international flights would now operate from the new terminal, beginning on Tuesday.
VNA will occupy 22 check-in counters on the 2nd floor of the facility, while baggage carousels and information desks for lost luggage will be arranged in a separate area on the ground floor.
A representative of low-cost airliner Jetstar Pacific said that all of the airline’s international flights would also move to the new terminal, starting from today (11 May).
Vietjet currently has no international flights from Da Nang.
The 1st international terminal at the Da Nang Airport was inaugurated on 25 December 2011, with an annual capacity of between 4.5 and 5 million passengers.
