The rapidly expanding Noi Bai International Airport serves Hanoi and the north of Vietnam. The opening of the new international Terminal 2 in 2014 has boosted the capacity of this modern airport, and passengers flying from Hanoi with Qatar Airways will find it to be an efficient and well run airport with the emphasis firmly on passenger care.
The staff are incredibly friendly and eager to make sure your passenger experience is one to remember for all the right reasons, and the expanding facilities in the new terminal give passengers everything they need for a good start to their journey.
Transportation and parking
Buses are one of the best ways to get to the airport, with the number 7 running from Kim Ma bus station and the number 17 from Long Bien bus station.
They run every 15 minutes or so, but journey times will depend on the time of day as Hanoi’s traffic is notoriously congested, especially at peak times.
A dedicated airport minibus leaves from opposite the Vietnam Airlines Office on Quang Trung in Hanoi city centre, while taxis are plentiful, very cheap and take approximately 30 minutes to get from the city centre to the airport. There are plenty of parking areas for both short and long-term stays, and a VIP valet service is also available.
Arriving in Hanoi
Passengers flying from Hanoi with Qatar Airways will depart from the new Terminal 2 building. A business lounge is available for First Class and Business Class travellers once you have cleared the security checks, and a public lounge area is also open to all passengers. Allow at least two hours before your flight is due to depart to check in and clear customs checks.
Facilities and amenities
The new terminal has improved facilities and amenities at the airport considerably, and it now boasts a good selection of retail outlets selling both high-quality accessories and interesting locally made goods.
Food and drink vendors supply everything from light snacks and drinks through to more substantial meals. ATMs are available in the main forecourt, and a Duty Free shop is also open for passengers who have cleared security.
