Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat International Airport (VVTS) returned Runways 25R/07L to normal operation July 2, two months ahead of schedule, after a four-month closure for repairs. According to the Airports Corporation of Vietnam, the runway closure had significantly reduced the airport’s arrival acceptance rate, to 22 aircraft per hour from 32.
