Tan Son Nhat Int’l Airport requested to better rearrange pick-up, drop-off areas

The Ho Chi Minh City Transport Department yesterday released a formal document asking that Tan Son Nhat International Airport and the Southern Airports Authority be stricter in monitoring and handling law violations and reorganize pick-up, drop-off areas for passengers more logically to maintain security in the airport and timely review proposals within their power.

Accordingly, the HCMC Transport Department demanded that Tan Son Nhat International Airport be more active in cooperating with relevant functions agencies to supervise daily operations of the airport and promptly report to the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam, the Transport Ministry any potential challenges that they cannot address. The department will aid in this supervision task to regulate traffic and impose necessary punishments to violators.

As to the outer side of the airport, the HCMC Transport Department will collaborate with the HCMC Public Security Department, the People’s Committee and Public Security Station of Tan Binh District to handle law violations and regulate traffic when needed in order to avoid congestions.

As explained by the HCMC Transport Department, the congestion incident lately in this airport is because the forecast of domestic traveler quantity is rather imprecise, the collaboration between relevant units (TCP Vietnam Investment JSC., the Southern Airports Authority, Tan Son Nhat International Airport) to regulate vehicle flows is not logical and timely, the supervision and handling cases of taxi drivers violently competing for passengers are not strict.
