HCMC – The Department for Roads of Vietnam has written to the Government proposing the pilot implementation of electronic toll collection (ETC) at Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat international airports for a period of six months.

ETC systems have been in place on many roads in the country, with nearly five million vehicles utilizing ETC tags or opening toll payment accounts, representing over 90% of the total number of vehicles nationwide.

The proposal to introduce ETC systems at airports aligns with the development trends in smart transportation, offering enhanced convenience for road users while optimizing the efficiency of investments in multiple projects.

At present, the airports across the nation, particularly Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat airports, still require drivers to stop at toll booths to pay fees in cash. This manual process often results in congestion, causing frustration for drivers and passengers.
