HCMC – The Tan Son Nhat International Airport plans to put the 3,500-square-meter temporary taxi stand into operation from January 15 to February 6 to serve the huge demand of taxis waiting their turn to enter the domestic and international terminals during the Lunar New Year holiday (Tet).

The taxi stand is designed with around 100 parking spaces, located at the corner of Bach Dang, Truong Son and Hong Ha streets in Tan Binh District, next to the road leading to the international terminal at the airport.

It has sought support from the HCMC People’s Committee, the Department of Transport, the Southern Airports Authority and other agencies to regulate traffic and handle illegal parking and hawking on the roads around the airport and taxi stand.

This upcoming taxi stand will help the Tan Son Nhat International Airport actively arrange taxis for passengers, ensure environmental hygiene and relieve the traffic problem in the area.

The latest statistics show that the Tan Son Nhat airport is expected to operate 26,926 flights and handle about 3.85 million passengers during the upcoming Tet holiday, up 9.5% over the figure in 2019.

The airport is forecast to handle an average of 130,000 passengers a day during that period. On the busiest days of Tet, the daily number of passengers would reach over 144,000, well above the record of 127,885 passengers set in 2019.
