Hanoi has launched a new high-quality bus route connecting its railway station and Noi Bai International Airport, costing VND30,000 ($1.3) per ticket.

It is expected to take about 55 minutes for the new number 86 service to complete its route from Hanoi Railway Station to the airport.

The bus can accommodate about 80 passengers with 25 seats and lots of space for luggage.

The service will start at 05:10 from the station and 06:30 from the airport, and run until 20:30 and 23:30, respectively.

The buses are low-riding, allowing passengers to step on and off more easily, especially the elderly, children and the disabled.

In March, Ho Chi Minh City launched six high-quality buses connecting the city center with Tan Son Nhat International Airport.
