VOV.VN - The number of passengers passing through Tan Son Nhat Airport on January 19 is anticipated to have reached a record figure of over 130,000 passengers, including 94,000 domestic visitors, ahead of the Lunar New Year, known locally as Tet.
In line with the plan, there will be nearly 900 takeoffs and landings from Tan Son Nhat Airport on January 19 with an estimated 130,865 passengers travelling through the airport.
This comes following the airport also welcoming 912 flights on January 18, equivalent to nearly 128,700 passengers, including 92,000 domestic passengers.
As a means of facilitating passengers’ travel, Tan Son Nhat Airport recommends that passengers proactively do check-in procedures two hours before departure for domestic flights and three hours before departure for international flights.
During this year’s peak period, Tan Son Nhat Airport has been not overloaded due to the number of flights being allocated properly, with several flights taking place at night to avoid overcrowding during the day.
Furthermore, the airport has also deployed a number of measures aimed at ensuring security and safety, thereby closely co-ordinating with relevant units in a bid to deal with the current situation.
The airport has also provided passengers with information regarding their flights and luggage through QR codes, while a temporary taxi stand has been put into operation in a bid to serve the rising demand from traditional taxis waiting to enter the domestic and international terminals.
