Hanoi Airport Transfer

Overview of Hanoi Airport - Noi Bai Airport:

Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport is located about 35km north of the centre of Vietnam’s colourful capital, requiring about 45 minutes to transfer from Hanoi Airport to Hanoi (slightly longer during peak hours). At the end of 2014, Terminal 2 was unveiled to the public, offering international transfer with 96 new check-in counters, 17 boarding gates and flight information displayed on 283 new screens. Terminal 1 is now exclusively reserved for domestic flights.

Our professional drivers will transport you along smooth roads from Noi Bai Airport to Hanoi city centre, giving you a chance to relax and watch the passing views of meadows and farmland. You will get a great view over the Red River and the banana plantations on its banks, before proceeding through the newer sections of the city and into the Hanoi’s charming Old Quarter.
