To & From Noi Bai International Airport

Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport is about 35km north of the city, taking around 45 minutes along a modern highway. If you're planning to use public buses or the airline buses below to get to the airport, be sure to allow plenty of time before your flight.


Public bus 17 (9000d, 5am to 10pm) from outside the domestic (not international) arrivals hall runs to/from Long Bien bus station on the northern edge of the Old Quarter. Luggage is free unless larger than the luggage cage. Allow around 90 minutes’ travelling time.

Express bus 86 (30,000d, one hour, every 20 to 30 minutes, 5.10am to 10.30pm) is a new comfortable service that runs from Hanoi train station, and the north side of Hoan Kiem Lake outside the tourist information centre, to the international airport.


Airport Taxi charges US$20 for a taxi ride door-to-door to or from Noi Bai International Airport. From the terminal, look out for the official taxi drivers who wear bright-yellow jackets. They do not require that you pay the toll for the bridge you cross en route. Some other taxi drivers do require that you pay the toll, so ask first. There are numerous airport scams involving taxi drivers and dodgy hotels. Don’t use freelance taxi drivers touting for business – the chances of a rip-off are too high. If you’ve already confirmed accommodation, you're well advised to book an arrival transfer through your hotel.

Vietnam Airlines Minibus

Vietnam Airlines Minibus Links Hanoi from their branch at 1 Quang Trung to Noi Bai airport (40,000d). Look for the minibus with the price written on the side. This service runs roughly hourly, 5am to 7pm but is not very reliable as it only departs when full.
