On October 4, the People's Committee of Ho Chi Minh City sent a document to the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam (CAAV), showing its agreement with the CAAV’s draft plan to operate regular domestic air routes during the time of Covid-19 epidemic.

For the Ho Chi Minh City - Hanoi air route, HCM City proposed a number of round-trip flights this week to partially solve the urgent travel needs between the southern key economic region and Hanoi as well as northern provinces.

Previously, the northern port city of Hai Phong did not agree with the CAAV’s plan.

The CCAV has sought opinions of 19 cities and provinces on the plan, comprising Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, Hai Phong, Can Tho, Quang Ninh, Nghe An, Dien Bien, Thua Thien-Hue, Quang Binh, Quang Nam, Dak Lak, Gia Lai, Lam Dong, Phu Yen, Binh Dinh, Ba Ria-Vung Tau, Khanh Hoa, Kien Giang and Ca Mau.
