Electric cars to be used at Noi Bai Aiport

Vietnam’s Ministry of Transport has approved the use of electric cars on a trial basis at Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi to transfer passengers between terminals.

The initiative, which was proposed by the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam, for passenger and staff transfer between Terminal T1, the expanded Terminal T1 and Terminal T2, when it becomes operational by the end of this year.

The administration director, Lai Xuan Thanh, told local media that electric vehicles were a better option than taxis or motorbikes.

“Passenger demand for transfers between terminals is now quite high… we need a solution,” he added.

Regulations for the use of vehicles within the airport complex need to be revised. There was just one terminal up until the end of December so there was no requirement for vehicles, other than technical support for aircraft, gate transfers and supplies.

Even the use of environmentally friendly electric cars will require a change in regulations.

Currently, there are 36 domestic and international airlines operating from and to the Noi Bai International Airport. Last year, there were around 90,000 flights, carrying nearly 13 million passengers and 332,000 tonnes of cargo.

Last December, the expanded Terminal T1 officially started operations. It has a capacity to serve 6 million passengers a year. Terminal T2, which has the capacity to serve 15 million passengers, will be fully operational by the end of this year.
