HCMC – Local air carriers are continuing to increase the number of domestic flights to meet the rising travel demand from passengers now that the coronavirus pandemic has been well controlled in Vietnam and the aviation market is on the path to recovery.
On September 14, Vietnam Airlines announced it would increase the number of flights from Hanoi City to Vinh, Quy Nhon, Tuy Hoa, Nha Trang, Dalat and Pleiku this month. The weekly flights are set to be revised up by 2-16 on each air route.
The carrier is increasing its flights on the Hanoi-Danang route by four per day from today, September 16, while five additional daily flights will also be operated on the HCMC-Danang air route.
As the number of passengers and Vietnam Airlines’ domestic flights are on the rise, the carrier’s operations are expected to soon return to normal, said a representative of the carrier.
Since the Covid-19 pandemic has been temporarily contained in the country, Vietjet has restarted the Danang-Haiphong/Dalat/Buon Ma Thuot/Can Tho/Nha Trang air routes, with a flight frequency of 1-5 per week.
The airline has increased the number of daily round-trip flights by four on the Danang-HCMC air route from September 13, while the Danang-Hanoi route is seeing its daily flights rise by three. In October, the carrier will increase the number of daily flights on the two air routes by 7-10.
Meanwhile, Bamboo Airways announced that it would open three air routes from Hanoi, Haiphong and Vinh to Con Dao in late September to serve local tourists after the coronavirus outbreak is brought under control.
