In 2020, the Airport served over 22 million passengers.
The Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Vietnam’s Ho Chi Minh city has been recognized as one of the world’s 10 best airports that handled 20-25 million passengers in 2021 by Skytrax.
In the rankings done by passenger numbers, it was 10th while London’s Heathrow topped the list.
The rankings were made by the British international air transport rating organization by asking passengers about infrastructure, service quality, personnel, and procedure processes at over 500 airports around the world, according to a report by local news outlet.
These awards use the air traffic statistics for departure, arrival, and transit from 2020, and group together airports handling a similar volume of customers to give a like-for-like analysis, according to Skytrax.
The terminals at Tan Son Nhat have recently been upgraded, and more screening equipment has been installed, VNExpress reported.
It has received Airport Health Accreditation from the Airports Council International after having taken preventive measures against Covid-19.
Tan Son Nhat International Airport is the largest airport in Vietnam. It is located 4 mi (6 km) north of the center (District 1) of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). Before the pandemic, the airport had handled some 40 million passengers against a designed capacity of 25 million per year.
