HÀ NỘI — Localities with high vaccination rates may consider stopping the 'three-on-the-spot' production model, said Deputy Prime Minister Lê Văn Thành on Wednesday.
He made the statement while chairing a national teleconference on goods circulation, passenger transport and production restoration in industrial production areas to ensure safe and flexible adaptation to and effective control of the COVID-19 pandemic.
At the event, the Ministry of Transport said it has built plans on restoring domestic flights in the period from October 21 to November 30 based on the outcomes of the pilot resumption of domestic flights from October 10-17.
Accordingly, a maximum of six flights each way daily will be allowed on the routes connecting Hà Nội – HCM City, Hà Nội – Đà Nẵng, and Đà Nẵng – HCM City from October 21 – November 14, and the number will be raised to seven during November 15-30.
On other routes, the maximum will be four flights each way per day.
The frequency of flights by each airline on each route will increase by one per day on November 1 and 15 if the average seat occupancy of all airlines on the route during the previous seven days reached at least 75 per cent.
Stressing the viewpoint of “safely and flexibly adapting to and effectively controlling COVID-19”, Deputy PM Thành requested more domestic air routes to be reopened while rail and road transport is maintained.
He asked localities, especially those classified as 'green zones', to step up measures against the pandemic, early detect infections, and prevent the formation of disease clusters.
He also told the Ministry of Transport to quickly complete and issue a plan for the operation of air and rail transport in the future. — VNS
