HCMC’s Tan Son Nhat International Airport has been recognized by Skytrax as one of the world’s 10 best airports that handled 20-25 million passengers in 2021.

In the rankings done by passenger numbers for the 20-25 million passengers group, it was 10th while London’s Heathrow topped the list.

The rankings were made by the British international air transport rating organization by asking passengers about infrastructure, service quality, personnel, and procedure processes at over 500 airports around the world.

It said on its website: "These awards use the air traffic statistics for departure, arrival, and transit from 2020, and group together airports handling a similar volume of customers to give a like-for-like analysis."

The terminals at Tan Son Nhat have recently been upgraded, and more screening equipment has been installed.

It has received Airport Health Accreditation from the Airports Council International after having taken preventive measures against Covid-19.

In 2020, Tan Son Nhat served over 22 million passengers.

The previous year, before the pandemic began, it had handled some 40 million passengers against a designed capacity of 25 million per year.
