Dinh Viet Thang, Director of the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV), said domestic flights have enjoyed breakthroughs in terms of both passenger and cargo traffic in the first half of 2022.

In particular, airports across Vietnam served 40.7 million passengers, up 56.8 percent from the same period last year. That included 1.8 million foreign passengers and 38.9 million Vietnamese, respectively rising 904.6 percent and 52.6 percent.

The CAAV forecast airports nationwide will serve about 87.8 million passengers this year, jumping 190 percent from 2021. The numbers of foreign and domestic passengers are expected at some 5 million and 82.8 million, up 844 percent and 178.4 percent, respectively.

The cargo throughput stood at about 765,000 tonnes in the six months, up 30.6 percent. It is predicted to grow 5 percent from last year to 1.5 million tonnes in 2022.

Thang expressed his hope that with such growth, the entire aviation market of Vietnam will soon return to pre-pandemic levels./.
