Aviation authorities have decided to restart flights on 19 routes on Sunday after the government approved a 11-day pilot resumption plan.

Until October 20 there will be one return flight daily on all the routes, including the Hanoi-HCMC.

From HCMC there would be flights to popular tourist destinations such as Binh Dinh, Da Nang, Hue, Khanh Hoa, Phu Yen, Quang Binh, Quang Nam, Hai Phong, Nghe An, Thanh Hoa, Phu Quoc, Rach Gia, and Gia Lai, the Ministry of Transport said.

From Hanoi, there will be flights to HCMC, Da Nang and Can Tho.

From Da Nang, there will be flights to Can Tho City and Buon Ma Thuot in the Central Highlands, and from Thanh Hoa there will be a flight to Lam Dong Province, home to Da Lat.

Passengers should have been fully vaccinated at least two weeks before the flight or recovered from Covid-19 at least six months earlier. Besides, they should have had a negative Covid test within 72 hours, not have symptoms like cough, fever, shortness of breath, muscle ache, or sore throat, and make a medical declaration.

When traveling from the airport to their accommodation and during their stay, passengers have to strictly follow Covid-19 prevention guidelines and avoid large gatherings.

They have to monitor their health at home or be quarantined at their accommodation for at least seven days based on the local protocols, and those returning from Covid hotspots will be tested on the second day after arrival.

Passengers from HCMC to Hanoi will have to stay in centralized quarantine for seven days, and monitor their health at home the following seven days.

Following the ministry’s decision, carriers have resumed ticket sales.

In late August aviation authorities had instructed airlines to stop selling tickets until further notice as the outbreak raged.

In the fourth wave that began in late April the country has recorded over 827,000 Covid cases.

International flights were stopped early last year and are yet to resume.
