According to the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV), Skytrax has announced the World Airport Awards in 2021, in which Tan Son Nhat was honoured in the top 10 of the world’s best airports serving 20-25 million passengers per year.

This result is based on a survey of infrastructure, service and staff quality, as well as check-in processes of more than 500 airports worldwide.

Vu The Phiet, General Director of ACV said that this is a source of encouragement for Tan Son Nhat airport staff as well as ACV, who are striving to implement COVID-19 prevention and control measures to ensure the safety and health of passengers while improving service quality.
