Domestic airlines set record with over 33,000 flights in July

VOV.VN - Vietnamese airlines operated a total of 33,238 flights throughout July, up 8% against the previous month and up 781% year on year, according to the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV).

It surpassed other nations such as Mexico, Brazil, Russia, Spain, Turkey, Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, and more.

There were 41 flights cancelled during the reviewed period, making up 0.12% of the total and a drop of 4% compared to the same period last year.

The main reasons causing flight delays include late return flights, lack of personnel, poor management of ground services and high passenger demand.
