Vietnam Airlines is set to gradually resume flying on 40 routes, or nearly its entire domestic network, by next month, prioritizing Hanoi, HCMC and Da Nang.
Several flights are set to be resumed to the southern archipelago Con Dao Island, the central highlands province of Buon Ma Thuot and the northern province of Dien Bien from Thursday to Nov. 30.
The group, which comprises low-cost carrier Pacific Airlines and Vietnam Air Services Company (VASCO), will start conducting 90 routes a day from Thursday and will increase the figure to 120 from the end of this month.
There will be three flights a day between Hanoi, HCMC and Da Nang City. For the other locations the group will try to have at least one route a day, which could rise to two depending on demand.
Passengers can fly if they have been fully vaccinated for at least 14 days, or to have recovered from Covid-19, or to test negative within 72 hours.
Vietnam Airlines Group started resuming its domestic flights from Oct. 10. As of Tuesday it had conducted around 150 flights carrying nearly 12,000 passengers on 16 flight routes.
