Although international flights into Vietnam are still banned, the nation’s domestic air service is quickly returning to a full service.
On 22 April domestic flights re-opened, which followed the Vietnamese Government lifting its lockdown. By 7 May, the restrictions on the number of flights between Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang City were eased and passengers were no longer required to sit one seat away from each other.
Presently, five commercial airlines are operating service in the country: Vietnam Airlines, Jetstar Pacific, Vietjet Air, Vietnam Air Service Company and Bamboo Airways.
It is predicted that the entire domestic airline network will be back in service by June.
In an effort to rejuvenate the domestic travel market, Vietnamese carriers are also working with tour companies which are reducing their prices in an effort to attract customers back into the market.
