The national flag carrier-Vietnam Airlines will deploy online check-in service for passengers on domestic flights departing from Con Dao Airport in Ba Ria - Vung Tau Province, starting from November 10.
Vietnam Airlines is expected to perform regular commercial direct flights to the United States at the end of November 2021 after the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has just given the national flag carrier permission to exploit the Vietnam-US direct route.
On September 2 morning, Vietnam piloted the app-based digital health passport - the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Travel Pass for the first flight VN55 of Vietnam Airlines, carrying 18 passengers from Noi Bai International Airport in the capital city of Hanoi to London in the United Kingdom.
The Vietnam Aviation Business Association (VABA) estimates that in the year 2020, domestic airlines bore a loss of more than VND 18,000 bn, a sharp decrease of about VND 100,000 bn in revenue compared to 2019.
The national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines has been certified with the highest 5-Star Covid-19 Airline Safety Rating for the safety measures and improved hygiene processes introduced by the firm to help reduce the spread of the coronavirus.
