Tân Sơn Nhất International Airport (IATA: SGN, ICAO: VVTS) (Vietnamese: Sân bay quốc tế Tân Sơn Nhất, Vietnamese: Cảng hàng không quốc tế Tân Sơn Nhất) is Vietnam's largest international airport in terms of area (800 ha or 1,977 acres compared with 650 ha or 1,606 acres of Hanoi's Nội Bài International Airport and Đà Nẵng's Đà Nẵng International Airport[3][4]). It has a handling capacity of 25 million passengers per year, compared with the capacity of Hanoi - Noi Bai airport of 8 million passengers and Da Nang's 6 million passengers.[4] It is also the largest airport of Vietnam in terms of passengers handled (with a number of 17,538,000 passengers per year in 2012, accounting for 46.6% of Vietnam's air passenger traffic),[5] serving Ho Chi Minh City as well as the rest of southeastern Vietnam. Its IATA code, SGN, is derived from the city's former name of Saigon.

A new international terminal funded by Japanese official development assistance and constructed by a consortium of four Japanese contractors (KTOM, abbreviation of four contractors' names: Kajima -- Taisei -- Obayashi Corporation -- Maeda), opened in September 2007 with a capacity for 8--10 million passengers a year. The new terminal gives the airport a total annual capacity of 15--17 million passengers. The old terminal is now used for domestic flights.[3] After 2020, when Long Thanh International Airport is completed, Tan Son Nhat will remain operational; however, it will mostly serve for domestic flights, a few international flights and no longer serve transit flights.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tan_Son_...
