The national airline announced on April 5 to limit the number of passengers per flight to Ho Chi Minh City to ensure testing passengers for Covid-19.

The national flag carrier will limit less than 180 passengers on Boeing 787 or Airbus A350 aircraft, and no more than 120 passengers on Airbus A321 aircraft. The full capacities of the corresponding airplanes are 274, 305 and 184.

According to Vietnam Airlines, if the number of arrivals to Ho Chi Minh City via the Tan Son Nhat International Airport continues to rise, competent agencies may quarantine them before giving them medical tests for the virus. 

At the same time, the airline also announced it will adjust flight frequency on the routes between Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Danang after the central city decreed a 14-day quarantine period for passengers arriving from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, the country’s epidemic-hit cities. 

Vietnam Airlines will operate three roundtrip flights per week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday on routes between Hanoi – Danang, Ho Chi Minh City – Danang; one roundtrip flight per day between Hanoi - Ho Chi Minh City. 

Other domestic air routes continue to be temporarily suspended until further notice.
