HÀ NỘI — Vietjet will provide three additional flights from Hà Nội to HCM City, in addition to its regular daily flights, to ferry passengers who have completed their quarantine period, the budget carrier announced on Friday.
The flights, all coded VJ1121, will depart Hà Nội at 5.30pm on Saturday and next Tuesday and 11.45am on Sunday. Passengers must have one of two documents. Those are a certificate showing they have completed their concentrated quarantine period or a certificate affirming they have tested negative for the virus.
For more information, passengers are advised to call Vietjet’s hotline 1900 1886, visit its website at www.vietjetair.com, or contact its ticket offices at Nội Bài International Airport in Hà Nội or Tân Sơn Nhất International Airport in HCM City.
The Ministry of Transport earlier asked the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam to impose restrictions on passenger transport around the country for a 15-day period starting from April 1.
Vietnamese airlines are permitted to operate two round-trip flights a day on the Hà Nội-HCM City route and one round-trip flight a day on the Hà Nội-Đà Nẵng and HCM City-Đà Nẵng routes. All other domestic flights have been suspended.
In March, Vietjet offered free COVID-19 insurance to all passengers flying on its domestic flights from Monday to June 30. SKY COVID CARE offers coverage ranging from VNĐ20 million (US$860) to VNĐ200 million ($8,600) for all passengers regardless of nationality and age.
Once passengers are confirmed positive for the coronavirus, subject to a test approved by the Ministry of Health of Việt Nam, and treated at a hospital or at an authorised medical camp in Việt Nam, they are eligible to claim.
The tens of billions of đồng for the insurance premiums will be covered entirely by Vietjet — VNS
