The new airport located 40 km north of the city center, on the west bank of Dagu river, will be part of the national transport infrastructure. The new terminal, to replace the existing one, will operate mainly domestic and cargo flights. The design should allow phased development within a 18.3 sq km site, to process 38 million passengers/year in 2025 and 58 to 60 million passengers/year in 2045. RBTA local partner was the Chinese design company BIAD. Link to architect website
