Stop regular Hanoi-HCMC flights: Vietnam aviation authority

Update: 20:22 | 08/08/2021

The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CVAA) has proposed that all flights between Hanoi and HCMC are stopped as the nation fights a prolonged Covid-19 wave.

The CVAA said Saturday that it has asked the Ministry of Transport to freeze all regular flights between localities that are under social distancing orders, including Hanoi and HCMC.

It has proposed that only special flights are flown on air routes between social distancing localities. While flights to bring workers back to their hometowns can be considered, it would be necessary for the localities to pick up passengers at the airport to test and quarantine them, it said.

For now, flights from HCMC to Hanoi and many other localities have been suspended; and there are very few flights from Hanoi to HCMC.

The airports in the southern region that are implementing social distancing campaigns include Tan Son Nhat, Can Tho, Phu Quoc, Rach Gia, Ca Mau and Con Dao.

In the north, there’s the Noi Bai Airport in Hanoi. So far, flights from Hanoi to Rach Gia, Ca Mau, Con Dao, Can Tho and Phu Quoc have been stopped.

Hanoi authorities decided Sunday to extend the ongoing social distancing order until August 22 as a response to several Covid-19 clusters being detected in the capital city.
