Noi Bai International Airport (IATA: HAN, ICAO: VVNB), the biggest airport in northern Vietnam, serves the capital city of Hanoi. The airport is located 28 miles (45 km) from the city’s downtown.
A number of Vietnamese and international airlines operate from Hanoi Noi Bai Airport, including Vietnam Airlines, Pacific Airlines, AirAsia, Cathay Pacific, Hong Kong Airlines, Thai Airways, Lao Airlines, Nok Air and Tiger Airways.
The airport terminal provides various services, shopping, currency exchange, ATMs and transportation options.
At 650 ha, Noi Bai is the second-largest airport in Vietnam, behind the 800 ha Tan Son Nhat International Airport. A larger international terminal (T2, with a capacity of 16 million passengers per annum) is under construction as of September 2013, with completion expected by late 2014.
The airport 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.
