HCMC – Vietnam Airlines will operate an additional 2,000 night flights per day during the upcoming holiday and the summer travel season.

The national flag carrier will offer tickets at reasonable prices for flights after 21:00 between HCMC and Hanoi, with fares ranging from VND1,724,000 to VND1,929,000 per trip, inclusive of fees and charges. Similar pricing policy will apply to flights from major cities like HCMC and Hanoi to tourist destinations such as Nha Trang and Quy Nhon.

The increase in night flights aims to meet customer demand amid a shortage of air services caused by the grounding of several aircraft for engine inspections.

Currently, occupancy on flights between Hanoi and Hue, Hanoi and Nha Trang, and HCMC and Phu Quoc ranges from 70% to 90%. Meanwhile, 50% of seats on flights from Hanoi to Danang and Phu Quoc are normally occupied.

Vietnam Airlines forecast a significant increase in occupancy on these routes in the week leading up to the Reunification Day (April 30) and International Labor Day (May 1) holiday, which lasts from April 27 to May 1.
