1. Noi Bai International airports
Noi Bai International Airport (IATA: HAN, ICAO: VVNB) (Vietnamese: Sân bay Quoc te Noi Bai, the biggest airport in northern Vietnam, serves the capital city Hanoi. The airport is 28 miles (45 km) from the city’s downtown. Travel time by taxi takes between 30 to 45 minutes
Hanoi city bus services 07 and 17 connect Noi Bai Airport with Hanoi’s city-center. The bus stop is just on the right side of the terminal exit. Traveling by bus costs 5,000 VND (0.3 USD) per person and takes about one hour. However, passengers with oversized luggage are known to be denied boarding. Buses operate from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Airport taxi costs a fixed 250,000 VND (15 USD) for a sedan and toll charges are included in the price. A sign by the taxi stand outside the terminal will show the latest official prices. A taxi to the city-center takes about 40 minutes. Avoid using private drivers with non official taxis: there has been (some scarce) complaints of travelers being brought to desert places and robbed, when using rogue anonymous taxis. Drivers of official taxis always display their license with their photo and name on the taximeter.
There is also the Airport Minibus, which is 30,000 VND (2.0 USD) but only leaves after it is completely filled.
Minibuses and taxis park right in front of the airport exit gate. There are three companies operating several kinds of taxis and minibuses, and they are almost the same in price and service.
The operating hours, and the air port visa of the airport is 24/24 hours per day. Service help: please call (84) 943 25 25 52 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org if you need help in arranging your transportation to and from Noi Bai airport

Arriving passengers disembark through jet ways, although some flights may be parked away from the terminal and require a short walk to immigration that is located on the upper level. Immigration desks are available for both ASEAN and non-ASEAN residents, who generally must be in possession of a visa prior to arrival, or make advance plans to pick one up in the arrivals area prior to clearing Customs. There are toilet facilities and duty-free shops available in the baggage hall.
A currency exchange desk is located immediately past the Customs desk. There are no facilities for non-passengers to enter the arrivals area and they are limited to meeting passengers outside the terminal. It is here that passengers can pick up taxis, motorcycles or a bus into the city.
The air-conditioned airport bus, service number 152, is the cheapest way into Ho Chi Minh City. It is especially useful for tourists since it passes most of the major hotels along De Tham Street and Dong Khoi Street.
Only passengers are allowed inside the terminal.
Passengers enter the domestic terminal on the lower level where check-in formalities are completed; in the new international terminal departures are on the upper level. Trolleys are not permitted past the security checkpoints, but smaller trolleys are normally available once the checkpoint has been cleared.
International passengers complete passport control formalities and then pass into the departures lounge. The new terminal contains several shops and restaurants, mostly charging Western prices for items, as well as the total of 5 business-class lounges, one of them is operated by Vietnam Airlines and one of them is operated by Star Alliance. Flights are normally called and passengers need to present themselves at the gate for baggage screening and boarding, normally through jetways.
