A CAAV representative said that as of April 30, the CAAV has proposed increasing flights on the Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh City air route to four return journeys per day, taking the total to 24.

In addition, the CAAV have requested adding two flights on the Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City-Da Nang air route, taking the total to eight per day, while there will be an additional four return flights on other domestic routes each day.

Between May 1 and May 15 the CAAV proposes allowing airlines to increase their operating frequency by 40%, with a total of 33 return flights per day on the Hanoi-HCM City air route

The Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh-Danang route will see 11 return flights per day, of which Vietnam Airlines and VietJet Air operate would four flights each, with Bamboo running two flights, whilst Jetstar Pacific would operate a single flight.

When the COVID-19 epidemic is fully brought under control, the CAAV proposes allowing domestic flights to reach approximately 60% of their operating capacity in comparison with the previous year.

This proposal would see 50 flights running daily between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City along with 20 flights on the Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City–Da Nang route.

In addition, in line with new regulations airlines are required to apply preventive measures when conducting check-in procedures for passengers and boarding.
