Noi Bai International Airport (IATA: HAN, ICAO: VVNB) (Vietnamese: Sân bay Quốc tế Nội Bài) in Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, is the largest in the north of the country. It is 28 miles (45 km) from the city centre. The travel time from the city centre is 30–45 minutes.


The airport is small compared to the other two international airports in Vietnam. A larger international airport has been planned for Hanoi, and loans for its construction have been secured.

It has a new 3,800-meter paved runway (CAT II - 11R/29L - Opened in August 2006) and an older 3,200-meter paved runway (CAT I -11L/29R)

The distance between the two runways is only 250 metres, so the airport has a maximum capacity of 10 million passengers a year in accordance with International Civil Aviation Organisation safety regulations.


  • April 7, 2005: Tiger Airways started thrice-weekly flights between Hanoi and Singapore after launching direct flights between Ho Chi Minh City and Singapore on April 1, 2005. Tiger Airways became the first budget airline to operate in Vietnam.
  • October 17, 2005: Low-cost carrier AirAsia launched direct flights between Hanoi and Bangkok. It is the second budget airline serving Vietnam after Tiger Airways.
  • September 2, 2007: A Singapore Airlines Airbus A380 landed at Noi Bai.
  • Since mid 2010, Noi Bai has been a hub for Skyteam; Vietnam Airlines joined the network in 2010.

In 2008, the airport received approximately 8.0 million passengers and accounted for one-third of international departures and arrivals at Vietnam's three international airports.
