ADP Ingénierie to study expansion of Hanoi’s Noi Bai airport

The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) has awarded French consulting firm ADP Ingénierie to study the expansion of Noi Bai International Airport of Hanoi.

On Thursday 24 April, Jean-Yves Coulot and Anthony Le Caherec from ADP signed a cooperation memorandum with the authorities of the Civil Aviation of Vietnam – which includes the expansion project and completion of the development masterplan of Noi Bai International Airport of Hanoi.

The expansion project of the Noi Bai International Airport of Hanoi as well as its associated Masterplan were requested by CAAV for projections to 2030 and 2050.

Both projects are financed by the FASEP, the ‘Studies and Support Fund for the Private Sector’, which is a French Government fund.

ADP Ingénierie is already committed in Vietnam, in the design of the new Long Tanh International Airport of Ho Chi Minh City and of the refurbishment of its Tan Son Nhat existing international airport.

Plans were detailed back in 2016 to expand Noi Bai by adding new terminal buildings and a third runway and to boost capacity to 35 million passengers annually by 2030, and to 50 million passengers after 2050. Cargo capacity would go from 260,000 tonnes annually now to 500,000 tonnes annually in 2050.
