The Ministry of Transport has sent a document to the Hanoi People’s Committee, proposing two plans on the resumption of domestic flights between the capacity city and Ho Chi Minh City from October 10.
According to the first plan, there will be two round-trip flights between the two major cities each day.
Meanwhile, there are only four flights from Hanoi to HCM City each day under the second plan.
Apart from observing the Health Ministry’s “5K message” and making health declarations at the locations of departure and arrival, passengers need to be fully vaccinated, with the second dose administered at least 14 days but no more than 12 months prior to departure or show a certificate proving they had recovered from disease no more than six months prior to departure.
Those coming from high-risk areas must present proof of negative COVID-19 testing results using RT-PCR method or rapid tests within 72 hours before departure.
For flights to/from other localities, the Ministry of Transport asked the Hanoi People’s Committee to give detailed opinions.
HCM City and other provinces like Dien Bien, Binh Dinh, Phu Yen, Khanh Hoa, Lam Dong, Kien Giang and Ca Mau have confirmed their readiness to resume flights to/from Hanoi./.
