Vietnam Airlines has announced it will increase the number of flights during Tet (Lunar New Year holidays) by a further 500 after informing increases in August and earlier in December.

The 500 flights will be between Jan. 6 and Feb. 5, 2023, and have over 90,000 seats. Most of them will be from HCMC and Hanoi to Vinh, Thanh Hoa, Dong Hoi, Chu Lai, and other places.

Vietjet Air and Bamboo Airways have sold nearly all tickets on their Tet extra flights. Vietravel Airlines has increased the number of daily return flights between HCMC and Hanoi to three.

Airlines will altogether operate nearly 33,700 flights with 6.7 million seats during Tet, which falls in late January, up 33% from the previous year.

But with many people still unable to buy tickets to return home for the New Year, the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam and airlines are considering adding even more flights.
