HÀ NỘI – National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines said its flights and check-in system in the United Kingdom were not affected by the massive global IT failure of British Airways. Accordingly, all flights from Hà Nội and HCM City to London, the United Kingdom, are operating as usual. 

The incident caused delays and cancellations of many flights from the United Kingdom’s two largest airports Heathrow and Gatwick from May 27 to 29. 

Around a quarter of Sunday’s flights set to depart from London’s major hub before 10pm (2100 GMT) were cancelled as the airline battled to contain the "knock-on disruption" to schedules, with aircraft and crews out of position around the world.

Meanwhile, on Monday, a severe storm hit Moscow, Russia due to which there was no flight of Vietnam Airlines from/to Moscow on that day, the carrier said. — VNS
