HO CHI MINH City, Nov 9 (Bernama) -- Over US$6 billion will be invested in building the Long Thanh International Airport (LTIA) in Vietnam's southern province of Dong Nai, Vietnam News Agency (VNA) reported.

According to the Japan Airport Consultancy Company (JAC)'s final report on the LTIA master plan, which was approved by the Ministry of Transport last week, the LTIA is planned to become a transit airport in Southeast Asia with a designed capacity of handling 44.5 million passengers and 1.2 million tonnes of cargo per year by 2030.
