Public transportation from Hanoi airport to city center (updated Aug 2018)

After revising some information on the Internet about public transportation from Noi Bai International Airport (Hanoi) to the city center, I found out that most of them are out – dated. I hope the information in this post will be helpful for any tourist in choosing a cheap and reliable airport transfer.

In May 2016, the city of Hanoi launched a new express bus line no 86 runs from Noi Bai Airport (Terminal 1 & 2) to the city center. This bus line is designated for airport transfer with lots of luggage space, information available in English and Vietnamese, etc. However, the detail about this bus line is available only in Vietnamese.


  • 3 new bus stops
  • New update for Terminal 2 bus stop
  • New update for bus stop in the city center (only applicable to certain time due to the new launch of walking streets around the Hoan Kiem Lake)
