Under the move, passengers buying air tickets from airlines under the Vietnam Airlines Group, including Vietnam Airlines, Pacific Airlines and Vasco, would pay system administration fee of VND350-450,000 (US$15.3-19.66) per flight (including value-added tax), an increase of VND100,000 (US$4.37) from the previous month.

Such price hike would be applied for all domestic flights that Vietnam Airlines Group are operating.

In a similar move, Bamboo Airways said it would raise the system administration fee for both single and group tickets from May 10 by VND90,000 (US$3.93) to VND320,000 (US$14) and VND460,000 (US$20), respectively.

In the second quarter of last year, airlines such as Vietjet Air, Bamboo Airway, Vietnam Airlines and Pacific Airlines had also raised such fees by around VND100,000.

Currently, the price for a domestic air ticket would include airport taxes, fuel surcharges, service, check-in fee, and administration cost, among others.
