The new airport will be built in Long Thanh district, Dong Nai province, about 50 km (31 miles) from the northeast of Ho Chi Minh City, near Highway 51A.
When Long Thanh International Airport is opened, Tan Son Nhat Airport will serve domestic passengers only. Long Thanh International Airport is expected to be the top airport on the Indochinese peninsula, and one of the busiest airports in the southeast of Asia.
