HCMC – The Ministry of Transport has sought the prime minister’s approval over a plan to resume regular international flights linking Vietnam with several priority countries and territories early next month, with one weekly flight per destination.

The destinations include Guangzhou in China, Seoul in South Korea, Tokyo in Japan, Taiwan, Vientiane in Laos and Phnom Penh in Cambodia.

The Transport Ministry will work with its counterparts in these countries and regions on the flight resumption plan.

Under the plan, some 2,500-3,000 passengers will be flown to Vietnam on regular international flights every week, aside from 1,000-1,500 Vietnamese citizens returning home on repatriation flights and foreign experts arriving in Vietnam for work via charter flights.

Passengers boarding these flights to enter Vietnam have to possess appropriate visas while undergoing flight procedures and comply with the country’s quarantine requirements.

The ministry also suggested that these international flights be operated on the routes of Guangzhou-Danang, Tokyo-Hanoi, Seoul-Hanoi, Taipei-HCMC, Vientiane-Quang Ninh and Phnom Penh-Can Tho, after considering their geographical conditions, quarantine capacity and equivalence of departures and arrivals.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam asked local carriers to operate one weekly flight per destination aimed at effectively deploying cabin crew, who are serving repatriation flights arranged by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The carriers will be allowed to increase the flight frequency once the coronavirus pandemic is contained and their partner airlines increase the number of flights and air routes.

Further, the Government leader suggested asking the Foreign Affairs Ministry to direct its representative offices overseas to work with the competent agencies in these countries and regions to create favorable conditions to grant permits to these flights.

The Health Ministry was urged to issue quarantine guidelines for passengers entering the country and cabin crew.
