Long Thanh International Airport will replaced Tan Son Nhat International Airport as the country's leading international airport. The Master Plan for this new airport was approved in April 2006. The new airport will be built in Long Thanh county, Dong Nai province, about 50 km North-East Ho Chi Minh City and 70 km South-West petroleum city of Vung Tau, by the Highway 51A. The Pre-Feasibility Study for this project is under way. The Long Thanh International Airport will be constructed on an area of 50 km². It will have four runways (4,000 km x 60 m) and is capable to receive all jumbo-jet (A380). The project is scheduled to start in 2007 and will be divided in two stages. Once the Stage 1 is completed, this airport will have 2 parallel runways (4,000 km x 60 m) and a Terminal with the capacity of 20 million passengers per annum. This stage will be finished in 2010. The 2nd stage is planned to be completed in 2015, then this airport will have 3 passenger terminals and a cargo terminal designed to receive 80 to 100 million passengers and 5 million metric tons of cargo per year. The total invested capital of this project is estimated $8 billion. Upon completion of Long Thanh International Airport, Tan Son Nhat Airport will serve domestic passengers only. Long Thanh International Airport is expected to be the leading airport in Indochina Peninsula, and one of the busiest air transportation hubs in the South-East Asian Region.
