After a three-month hiatus due to lack of aircraft, Pacific Airlines will resume operations next week with one aircraft leased from parent company Vietnam Airlines.

It plans to start flying on June 26 with an Airbus A321, it has notified authorities. Earlier this year, Pacific Airlines returned all its leased airplanes due to financial difficulties, which forced it to temporarily cease operations. It had been unable to make lease payments in time.

A source familiar with the matter told VnExpress that the carrier would operate eight flights a week between HCMC and central cities Da Nang, Vinh and Hue.

On days with high demand it will consider operating flights to Hanoi, and Thanh Hoa, Chu Lai and Tuy Hoa in the central region. Eventually it will get three aircraft from Vietnam Airlines.

Its website now offers flights from HCMC to Da Nang at fares starting at VND1.7 million ($67). For the first time it is offering business class seats, whose fares start at VND3.59 million.
