On December 31st 2014, just in time for the New Year, Noi Bai International Airport opened up its brand new Terminal 2. Housing five floors including a basement level, and situated across a main building and two wings, the new second terminal covers an area of 139,216 Sqm. The architectural design utilizes large glass walls to make the most of natural light within the space and minimize daytime energy requirements. Terminal 2 will exclusively serve international flights, whilst Terminal 1 will continue to handle all domestic operations.
Furthermore, Hanoi’s new Nhat Tan Bridge also opened to traffic, arriving a little later on January 4th 2015. This new bridge connects the recently-opened Terminal 2 at Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport with Hanoi city’s nearby Westlake area. The Nhat Tan Bridge was a joint project completed by a Japanese and Vietnamese coalition, and is one of three bridges in the world to have the greatest number of suspension spans. Nhat Tan Bridge will help ease traffic congestion accessing the capital, and is expected to reduce the travel time required from Hanoi city to the Airport and to the adjacent provinces.
