The three main international airports, which you will almost certainly arrive at when entering the country, are Noi Bai International in Hanoi, Tan Son Nhat International in Ho Chi Minh City, and Da Nang International in Da Nang. But, if you’re planning to explore Vietnam outside of the major cities, you might find yourself booking flights into obscure-sounding local airports.
Some are sparkling, modern affairs, while others are decades old or even re-purposed airfields left behind after the Vietnam war.nAll these facilities are managed by the Airports Corporation of Vietnam and, despite some being a little long in the tooth, they boast strong safety records.
