VGP - The national flag carrier Viet Nam Airlines has planned to reoperate international air routes as of July 1 to some countries and territories like the Republic of Korea (RoK), Taiwan (China), Hong Kong (China), Laos, Cambodia, Singapore. 

Viet Nam Airlines is the first domestic airline to unveil plans to resume operating international routes following their temporary suspension as a result of the impact caused by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Accordingly, Viet Nam Airlines is projected to exploit 7 flights per week in the Ha Noi- Seoul   route and 3-4 flights per week in Ha Noi – Ho Chi Minh – Busan route. 

Furthermore, the airline will reopen three flights from Ho Chi Minh City and four flights from Ha Noi to HongKong (China) starting from July 1.

Furthermore, the Ho Chi Minh City- Taiwan route is also expected to reopen with three flights running per week, whilst the Hanoi - Taiwan will run four flights per week.

Elsewhere, the Ho Chi Minh City - Bangkok route is scheduled to resume operations from July 9 with a frequency of seven flights per day, while the Ha Noi - Bangkok route will reopen from July 2 and see seven flights per day transport passengers between the two capitals.

Meanwhile, the Ho Chi Minh City - Singapore route is also expected to restart from July 2 with a frequency of seven flights per week. In addition, the Ha Noi - Vientiane (Laos), Vientiane - Phnom Penh (Cambodia), and Phnom Penh - Ho Chi Minh City routes will all operate from July 2 with a frequency of seven flights per day. 

Previously, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc allowed the reopening of international flight routes to areas without Covid-19 cases in 30 days. He asked the Ministry of Transport and Foreign Affair to suggest suitable routes and flights. 

The People’s Committees of provinces and cities take responsibilities for ensuring quarantine areas, picking up visitors as well as providing proper medical tests.

The Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Health are in charge of working on current regulations to offer quarantine fees, especially medical costs to ensure the state budget.
