HCM CITY (VNS) — HCM City is increasing the number of public transportation vehicles and aircraft parking bays in preparation for the Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday.
With the number of international passengers increasing from 10 million to 13 million per year, the Vietnam Airlines Corporation is pushing forward for the expansion of the international terminal at the Tan Son Nhat Airport.
Three more aircraft parking bays have been added to serve the increasing number of domestic flights. All staff at the Tan Son Nhat Airport have promised to not take leave during the peak season of Tet.
The centre for managing public transport of the city has procured 120 buses with at least 30 seats on each bus for major coach stations of Mien Dong, and Mien Tay, and other inter-municipal bus stations.
On the 29th of Tet on February 7, all chartered subsidised buses will stop delivering passengers at 12:00pm except for 4 bus lines, which are numbers 1, 20, 90 and 96. Those buses will deliver the last batch of passengers at 5pm.
All chartered subsidised buses will be working from 8am to 5pm on the first day of the Lunar New Year on February 8.
The railway transport company of HCM City said two more trains (TN7 and TN8) would be operating on January 25, 26, 27 and 28. — VNS
