Ho Chi Minh Airport has a couple of terminals, the International Terminal and the Domestic Terminal. Each terminal has its own building with separate sections for domestic and international services. 

Present and Future 

Due to the airports’ growth, the government decided two major mesures: To built another terminal in Tan Son Naht Airport. It has been decided to expand the airport with another building that will help the airport to handle up to 60-70 million passengers per year, expected to reach by 2025. 

But there is another plan too: Tan Son Nhat is located inside the city, so it can’t grow a lot more. There was a plan approved in 2011 to build a new airport: Long Thanh International Airport. It is expected to be completed by 2025.

Long Thanh International Airport will be in charge to handle all the international flights, while Tan Son Nhat Airport will handle the domestic and regional ones.
