Viet Nam News has reported the resumption of full domestic operations of Vietnam´s flag carrier, Vietnam Airlines, the news source said.
Full domestic operations resumed with 300 domestic passenger flights on May 29, up 36% for the year.
The total number of cargo and passenger flights on May 29 was almost equivalent to the figure on the same day in 2019, at over 350.
The number of domestic passengers has rapidly increased again thanks to the good control of the COVID-19 situation in the country. Since the social distancing order was eased on April 23, Vietnam Airlines has transported more than 500,000 domestic passengers.
In mid-May, Vietnam Airlines launched five new domestic routes to popular tourism destinations nationwide to meet the increasing travel demand of passengers. It plans to open six more domestic routes in June towards completing its air route network across the country.
