HCMC – Electronic toll collection (ETC) systems will be set up at five major airports in Vietnam to facilitate car fee collection.

The airports that will have ETC systems are Noi Bai, Cat Bi, Danang, Phu Bai, and Tan Son Nhat.

The Airports Corporation of Vietnam (ACV) is in the process of selecting contractors, with the installation of ETC systems expected to conclude by mid-2024.

This project needs an estimated VND214 billion, with the primary objective of reducing vehicular traffic congestion at airport entrances and exits, and improving overall service quality for passengers.

ETC systems at airports will be seamlessly integrated with existing ETC tags for use on highways and expressways across the country, eliminating the need for additional tags.

In a broader scope, the Ministry of Transport has plans to extend ETC services to encompass seaports, parking facilities, insurance services, and vehicle inspections.

There are 16,000 to 20,000 vehicles entering and exiting Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat international airports on a daily basis but fee collection at the two airports is conducted manually, leading to traffic congestion, particularly on public holidays.
