The national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines on December 25 officially operated its first international flight at the Noi Bai International Airport’s new terminal T2.

The flight, coded VN661, took off at 10:45am (local time), bringing passengers from Hanoi to Singapore.

All areas serving Vietnam Airlines’ flights are well-arranged and equipped with modern facilities, providing the best conditions for passengers.

At the new wing of the Noi Bai Airport, the airline has studied and installed an information technology system serving the operation of modern aircraft such as A350 and B787.

As planned, its international flights from Hanoi to Singapore, Kiaohsiung and Taipei (Taiwan) and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) will depart and land at the new terminal from December 26.

The four-storey terminal was built at a cost of 960 million USD. It can serve 10 million passengers each year, significantly reducing the burden on the existing terminal, which saw 12 million passengers last year.-VNA
