HCMC – Electronic toll collection (ETC) service will be launched at five major airports in the country from May 5, announced the Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV).

The five international airports are Noi Bai in Hanoi City, Cat Bi in Haiphong City, Phu Bai in Thua Thien-Hue Province, Danang in Danang City, and Tan Son Nhat in HCMC.

The installation of technical equipment to facilitate non-stop toll collection and automatic cashless payment is in its final stages.

ACV initiated the pilot implementation of ETC at Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat airports since February 2024.

Data provided by ACV indicated that from February 6 to March 19, a total of 203,606 vehicles utilized the ETC lanes at Noi Bai while 132,926 vehicles passed through the ETC lanes at Tan Son Nhat.

In addition to ETC, ACV has collaborated with electronic payment entities to introduce automatic toll collection at these five major airports. For vehicles without ETC tags, drivers only need to scan the QR code at the toll booth, and the system will deduct the toll fee automatically.

The project to equip the airports with cashless payment and ETC systems has a total investment of nearly VND215 billion, financed by ACV, with the objective of alleviating vehicle traffic congestion at the airports.
