Tan Son Nhat Cracks List of Top 25 Most Sleep-Friendly Airports

In a nod to Tan Son Nhat International Airport's improved facilities, the aerodrome has been included among the top 25 most sleep-friendly airports in the world, according to a new ranking.

A new list from Sleeping in Airports placed Tan Son Nhat 21st among the 25 most sleep-friendly airports in the world. The top three were Singapore's Changi International Airport, Seoul Incheon International Airport and Tallinn International Airport in Estonia. Saigon's aerodrome also came in 19th in the site's ranking on best airports for layovers.

Dan Tri reports that a Tan Son Nhat representative said the ranking reflected the staff's efforts to improve their services, especially at the international terminal.

Over the last year the terminal has been expanded, a project that included the addition of 20 free sleeping chairs, 10 sleep pods for longer naps and a play area for children. These features might have helped propel the airport onto this year's ranking.

Keep these amenities in mind the next time you're in the international terminal and your flight is delayed thanks to Tan Son Nhat's chronic overcrowding.
