HA NOI (VNS) — A total of 9.9 per cent of domestic flights, or 1,308 of 13,200, were late in September, according to the Civil Aviation Authority of Viet Nam (CAAV). This was a fall of 3.9 per cent from August.

The CAAV reported that no flights were cancelled because of commercial decisions.

Major reasons for late and cancelled flights included weather conditions and flight control problems.

Jetstar Pacific, VietjetAir and Vietnam Airlines had the highest percentages of recent flights cancelled or late – 19 per cent, 15.4 per cent and 6.6 per cent, respectively.

The two-month implementation of Directive 15, issued by the Ministry of Transport, accounted for reductions in the amount of late and cancelled flights, said Lai Xuan Thanh, head of the CAAV.

He said that after two months, late flights decreased from 26.7 to 21.1 per cent and cancelled flights from 1.7 per cent to 0.7 per cent. — VNS
