Vietnam to increase air and rail services during holidays

Vietnam’s Ministry of Transport will allow airlines and railway operators to increase their service frequencies for the upcoming Reunification Day (April 30) and Labour Day (May 1) holidays.

The move came following the Prime Minister’s decision to further ease travel restrictions as there have been no new cases of Covid-19 in the community for nearly two weeks.

Passengers will still have to comply with safety measures against Covid-19 despite the easing of travel restrictions.

The number of return flights on the Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh City route will increase to 28 per day while services between Hanoi/Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang will expand to eight flights per day from April 29 to 30.

For the following two weeks, airlines may operate a total of 36 flights per day between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, while the frequency of flights between Da Nang and the two cities will increase to 12.

Starting from May 16, daily services will be further expanded to 52 flights for the Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh City route and 20 for the Hanoi/Ho Chi Minh City-Da Nang route.

Rail services between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City will also be increased to five trains per day for the April 29-May 3 period.

Inter-provincial bus services between low-risk localities are also permitted to operate at 100% capacity while services to and from medium-risk localities are restricted at 50% capacity.

Despite the easing of travel restrictions, safety measures against Covid-19 remain in place and passengers must still report on their health, have their body temperature checked, wear face masks and sanitise their hands, among others.
