(VOVWORLD) - Noi Bai International Airport, 30 km northwest of Hanoi, will have a capacity of 63 million passengers and 2 million tons of cargo per year by 2030, according to a report by the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam on revised planning for the airport until 2030 with a vision to 2050.

The report said Noi Bai will be able to handle 100 million passengers and 5 million tons of cargo by 2050.

According to a proposal by ADPi, a French consulting company for airport architecture and engineering design, the airport will be planned as a civil-military airport which can operate large aircraft such as the Boeing 777-300ER and Airbus A380.

Last year, Noi Bai International Airport welcomed approximately 29 million passengers.
