The airport authority has established a separate check-in line and a group of staff to serve passengers bound for Hanoi, Hai Phong City and Vinh City in northern central Nghe An province, which are in-demand destinations.

A large number of families with small children and the elderly who arrived at the airport several hours in advance also added to the crowds.

The time slots between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. are the peak times according to airport staff.

“The airport has been busier in recent days as people return to their hometowns earlier than usual to celebrate Tet,” said a Tan Son Nhat Aviation Security Center leader.

Since the Ministry of Transport has lifted the requirement for certificates of full vaccination against COVID-19, recovery from the disease or negative test results in air passengers from Saturday and only kept the health declaration regulation, passengers will enjoy simpler airport procedures.
