HCMC – Vietnam Airlines (VNA) has announced its third increase in flight frequency, offering an additional 500 flights, equivalent to over 90,000 seats, to satisfy the soaring travel demand during the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday, or Tet.
The national flag carrier will operate these flights on domestic routes linking HCMC with Hanoi, Vinh, Thanh Hoa, Dong Hoi, Chu Lai and the Thanh Hoa-Dalat route between January 6 and February 2, 2023 (from the 15th of the 12th lunar month to the 15th of the first lunar month).
VNA is also set to add 200 flights, equal to 36,000 seats on the HCMC-Thanh Hoa route from January 15 to February 5, if it gets the nod from the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam.
The carrier made two increases in flight frequency in August and December this year to serve the peak travel season of Tet, offering millions of seats on both international and domestic routes.
VNA passengers are encouraged to use online check-in services to save time and avoid long queues and mass gatherings at airports.
