The airport in Hanoi ranks second in terms of the volume of passengers served and the number of flights performed, behind Ho Chi Minh airport in terms of these indicators.
Externally, the airport is made in the best traditions of the Vietnamese style, but inside the building everything is done neatly and comfortably, each of the four floors of the building clearly fulfills its task. The first and second floors are responsible for the arrival and departure areas, respectively, and the third and fourth are given over to various services..
Regular flights from Russia are made to the airport by Aeroflot, Vladivostok Air and Vietnam Airlines. The latter company also provides domestic flights. International flights operate mostly to East Asia, but there are also intercontinental flights.
