HCMC – Vietnam Airlines has restarted its regular commercial flights to China since today, December 9, as the country began to ease its Covid-19 restrictions, according to the local media.
Its flight departing from HCMC to Guanzhou, China, at 9:55 a.m. this morning marked the resumption of services after nearly three years of suspension due to the pandemic.
