Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi served 5,619 flights from January 19-29, up 49% annually, including 1,789 international flights.

The number of passengers hit nearly 900,000, up 71%, including 246,000 foreigners.

However, the number of domestic passengers was over 80% of the summer peak season 2022 while the number of foreign passengers was about 70-75% of that before Covid-19 in 2019, a leader of the airport said.

Noi Bai airport raised the security level between January 16-28, increased the number of security personnel by 20% compared to normal days; opened all check-in counters; and operated security scanners at maximum level, among other works.

Vietnam spent a seven-day Tet break from January 20-26, but traffic to and from major cities remained high until Sunday.

Last year, Tet break lasted from January 31 to February 4, which fell between two weekends.
