HÀ NỘI — The Đà Nẵng International Airport welcomed the first commercial flight from HCM City operated by Vietnam Airlines on Tuesday evening after the route resumed, the carrier said yesterday.
Passengers on the flight satisfied pandemic prevention and control requirements including a negative COVID-19 test certificate, full vaccination with two shots, or certificate of recovery from the disease.
The airline has restored 14 domestic routes since October 10. For the routes between Đà Nẵng and Hà Nội and HCM City, it is allowed to conduct five return flights on each route during the pilot period from October 10 to 20.
The number is expected to increase in the coming days after cities issue specific pandemic prevention and control regulations and facilitate the travel of people.
Vietnam Airlines operated nine commercial flights on Tuesday, comprising two between Hà Nội and HCM City, two each on routes connecting HCM City and Huế, Đồng Hới and Phú Quốc, and one between HCM City and Đà Nẵng.
The Hà Nội-HCM City route is the most crowded with seat occupancy of up to 94 per cent. — VNS
