The flights between Vietnam and Japan, South Korean are expected to be resumed from September 15.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) has proposed conducting four round-trip flights per week to South Korea and Japan, which are expected to start from September 15.

Under the agreement with Japanese and Korean partners, the Vietnamese air carriers will conduct two flights and each partner from Japan and South Korea will fly the two others.

However, Dinh Viet Thang, director of CCAV, said that the reopening of international routes is still pending approval from the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of National Defense, taking into consideration the domestic quarantine capacity and quarantine fees for arriving passengers as well as safety measures applied to passengers on entry. 

Air carriers will start selling tickets only after the relevant agencies reach a consensus on the above-mentioned issues.

Domestic airlines look forward to resuming daily international air services, and Japanese and Korean partners also expect to reconnect with Vietnam, said Thang.

According to the conclusions of a government meeting on Covid-19 prevention and control last week, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc stressed the importance of resuming air flights to Japan and South Korea to restart sending Vietnamese workers to those countries.  

The prime minister agreed to the proposal of the Ministry of Planning and Investment to allow the entry of business executives of South Korean enterprises who make short business trips in Vietnam according to the list submitted by the South Korean Embassy in Hanoi, as well as for other specific investors.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is assigned to handle the flights to bring Vietnamese citizens back home as well as to facilitate the entry of experts, investors, and skilled workers. Each flight must have a specific plan to ensure safety, including isolation, suitable for each group of arrivals.
