Tours from/to France still run as scheduled
Tours from/to France will still be running as scheduled following a series of deadly terror attacks across Paris on November 13, said Tran Thi Viet Huong, Deputy Director of PR Department at Vietravel, a major tour operator.
After the Paris attacks, Vietravel asked its branches to immediately check the status of all tours to Europe and get updates on local security conditions, Huong said.
She noted that the travel firm has about 10 tourist groups departing for Europe holiday tours from November 15-21 with stops in France.
According to the deputy director, Schengen member states in Europe who allow non-EU nationals with a valid Schengen visa to travel freely within the zone have restored border checks and heightened security in their tourism hot spots.
The Ho Chi Minh-based tour operator vowed to closely monitor the situation in Paris and help its clients alter tours if needed.
