  2. The "Construction of Passenger Terminal 3 - Tan Son Nhat International Airport" project consists of three main components: The passenger terminal, a multi-story car park combined with non-aviation services, and a dry bridge system in front of the terminal. The total investment for the project is 10,990 billion Vietnamese dong. The passenger terminal component includes one basement level and four above-ground levels, with a total construction floor area of 112,500 m2. The terminal has a linear layout similar to the existing terminal, designed with separate departure and arrival levels, with 90 traditional airline check-in counters, 20 self-service bag drop counters, and 42 kiosk check-in counters. It features 27 boarding gates (including 13 jet bridges and 14 bus gates), six baggage processing islands for departing passengers, ten baggage reclaim islands for arriving passengers, and 25 passenger security control gates. Particularly, Passenger Terminal 3 is designed with eight security control gates and a separate area to serve VIP, business class, and priority passengers. After completion, Passenger Terminal 3 will be a domestic passenger terminal with a capacity of 20 million passengers per year, capable of accommodating 7,000 passengers during peak hours, and serving all types of Code C and Code E aircraft. It will be implemented concurrently with the expansion of connecting transportation infrastructure led by Ho Chi Minh City to address the fundamental congestion issues at Tan Son Nhat International Airport.
