Vietnam's Tan Son Nhat is one of eight international airports with the lowest flight cancellation rates this summer at less than 0.3 percent, according to FlightAware.

The other seven airports are Thailand’s Suvarnabhumi, the Philippines's Ninoy Aquino, Singapore's Changi, Turkey's Sabiha Gökçen, Brazil's Sao Paulo-Guarulhos, Qatar's Hamad and South Korea's Jeju, New York-based magazine Condé Nast Traveler reported, citing data from aviation intelligence company FlightAware.

The U.S.-based aviation company compiled data from 26,000 destinations across the world to find which international airports have had the most cancelled flights from May 27 until July 31, the peak summer travel season.

At the other end, Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport in China topped the list of 10 airports for cancellations this summer, followed by Newark Liberty International Airport and LaGuardia Airport, both in the U.S.

Vietnam witnessed a travel boom during the peak summer season with tourist destinations across the country attracting over 23 million domestic visitors in the last two months, or over two thirds of the total in the first six months of the year.

Tan Son Nhat in Ho Chi Minh City is currently the largest and busiest airport in Vietnam.

The airport handles up to 850 flights and 130,000 passengers a day.

It has been serving 36 million passengers a year since 2017 against its designed capacity of 25 million a year by 2020.
