According to an announcement by Bamboo Airways, its regular flights will be suspended from July 26 to August 7, Tuoi Tre Online newspaper reported.

Although Vietjet and Pacific Airlines have yet to issue official announcements, they have suspended their flights due to the small number of passengers.

At present, Vietnam Airlines and VASCO are operating some air services between Hanoi and HCMC, Danang, Dien Bien and Nha Trang, and those on the HCMC-Danang and HCMC-Buon Ma Thuot routes.

According to the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam, airlines are still allowed to operate flights to localities which have yet to practice social distancing under the prime minister’s Directive 16, such as Thua Thien-Hue, Danang, Khanh Hoa, Dien Bien and Daklak.

However, as Hanoi and HCMC have imposed the measure, the number of air passengers has plunged.

On July 22, the Ministry of Transport suspended flights on the Can Tho-Hanoi and Phu Quoc-Hanoi routes and reduced the daily flights from HCMC to Hanoi to two. The flights were operated by Vietnam Airlines.

Nevertheless, the air carrier ran only one flight per day from July 22 to 27 as Hanoi could not prepare centralized quarantine facilities for a large number of people.

Therefore, Vietnam Airlines has suspended flights from HCMC to Hanoi. It operated two flights from Hanoi to HCMC per day, mainly transporting medical workers and cargo.
