Accordingly, the airline will carry a maximum of 180 passengers on Boeing 787 or Airbus 350 aircraft, and no more than 120 passengers on Airbus 321 planes.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam issued the regulation on the maximum number of passengers per flight to Tan Son Nhat Airport to conveniently receive passengers and take samples for COVID-19 testing.

At present, all passengers on flights to Tan Son Nhat Airport’s domestic terminal are tested for SARS-CoV-2 virus.

If the number of passengers arriving in Ho Chi Minh City through Tan Son Nhat International Airport increases, the aviation authorities will send them to isolation areas until they can be tested for COVID-19.

Vietnam Airlines has minimized domestic flights departing from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City and vice versa from April 1st-15th.

Accordingly, each airline only operates one flight per day on the Hanoi- Ho Chi Minh City air route and exploits three flights per week in Hanoi-Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City-Da Nang air routes.

Vietnam Airlines has suspended international flights until April 30th./.
