The Long Thanh International Airport, located in the Southern province of Dong Nai, is divided into three construction phases with the last one set to finish in 2050.

Once completed, the US$16 billion airport will be able to handle 100 million passengers per year and help reduce overload at the Tan Son Nhat International Aport in Ho Chi Minh City./.
