"Two months ago, Vietnam Airlines had thorough preparation in terms of markets, resources, flight crews, trade policies, etc. Therefore, right after the agreement of the government about international flight reoperation, we are ready to return," Mr. Dang Anh Tuan- Head of Communication Department of Vietnam Airlines said.

“Even with challenging markets, the airline will still make an effort to fly with a view to stimulating tourism”, he added.

Previously, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc allowed the reopening of international flight routes to areas without Covid-19 cases in 30 days. He asked the Ministry of Transport and Foreign Affair to suggest suitable routes and flights. While, People’s Committees of provinces and cities take responsibilities of ensuring quarantine areas, picking up visitors as well as providing proper medical tests. The Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Health are in charge of working on current regulations to offer quarantine fees, especially medical costs to ensure the state budget.
