Carriers have seen a spike in ticket bookings for flights from Hanoi and HCMC to various destinations in the country.

According to a report from the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CCAV), airlines have secured additional flight slots at Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat airports, resulting in an additional 472 flights and an expanded seating capacity of over 92,000.

Passenger bookings are on the rise, especially in the days leading up to and following the Lunar New Year in 2024.
