Vietnam Airlines resumes four additional domestic flights in October
Update: Oct 22, 2020
National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines has moved to reopen four more domestic flight routes in October in order to meet the travel demands of passengers whilst continuing business operations amid the effective control of the novel coroanvirus (COVID-19) domestically.
The resumption of the flight routes includes Ho Chi Minh-Tuy Hoa with one round trip per week, Vinh-Nha Trang with three round trips per week, flying on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and Da Nang-Nha Trang with three round trips per week, flying on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. In addition, the Danang-Phu Quoc route will feature four round trips per week, flying on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
To mark the re-opening of the domestic routes, Vietnam Airlines has also launched a preferential programme aimed at selling one-way tickets with prices starting at VND99,000, equivalent to VND579,000 including taxes and fees. The scheme will be applied to trips departing between October 25 and Decemer 31.
This comes as the airline also reopened six domestic flight routes in September, including Hai Phong-Da Lat, Hai Phong-Nha Trang, Hai Phong-Buon Ma Thuot, Da Nang-Da Lat, Da Nang-Buon Ma Thuat, and Hai Phong-Da Nang.
As a means of ensuring the health and safety of passengers, Vietnam Airlines will frequently clean and disinfect aircraft, whilst providing necessary equipment and medical protective gears for aviation staff. In addition, passengers will wear facial mask during their trips, complete medical declarations, and undergo a temperature check before travelling, according to the regulations implemented by the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam.
