HCM CITY — Airlines have advised customers to follow updates on flight schedules after Tân Sơn Nhất airport in HCM City closed a runway until April 30.
The runway is closed for repairs and could lead to changes in flights arrival and departure times, especially during peak hours.
Passengers are advised to keep track of their phones or emails in case of flight schedule updates.
Vietnam Airlines have worked hard with airport officials to optimise schedules and flight times to ensure take-offs and landings go as planned.
Earlier in February, to accommodate repair operations, the Civil Aviation Authority of Việt Nam modified the number of take-offs and landings at Tân Sơn Nhất airport to 30 flights per hour; several domestic departures to 24 flights per hour; and several domestic arrivals to 20 flights per hour. — VNS
