Vietnam Airlines will allow passengers at all 22 Vietnamese airports to check in online starting this month, the first airline to do so nationwide.
The new policy will be effective Monday for most airports, except for Ca Mau Airport and Rach Gia Airport, where it will enter effect Tuesday and Nov. 22, respectively.
Vietnam Airlines aircraft are seen at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City in August 2022.
Passengers can access the flag carrier’s website to check in anytime within 24 hours before departure but must do it at least one hour prior to boarding.
After the process is completed, passengers will receive an electronic ticket, which can be used to replace a physical equivalent.
Passengers with oversized baggage can check in using the electronic ticket at the counter.
Competitors Vietjet and Bamboo Airways so far only allow online check in at several major airports like Tan Son Nhat, Noi Bai, Da Nang, Phu Quoc and others. They are still in the process of expanding the list.
