Singapore Airlines has increased regular flights to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi from three to eight weekly since Monday.

There will be five flights a week from Singapore to HCMC and three to Hanoi, using Boeing B787-10 and Airbus A350-900 aircraft, the carrier announced on its website.

Flights between Singapore and Da Nang in central Vietnam remain suspended.

Singapore officially resumed commercial flights to HCMC and Hanoi from Jan. 13 with three weekly flights after nearly two years.

Singaporean investors have been eyeing the Vietnamese market in recent years and around 12,000 Vietnamese live in Singapore.

A total 90 percent of Singaporeans plan to visit Vietnam this year once entry restrictions are completely lifted, according to a poll of 1,000 people by Changi Airport Group, operator of the island nation's airport.

On Jan. 1, Vietnam allowed the resumption of regular services to eight destinations, including Singapore.

Fully vaccinated people and those who have recovered from Covid-19 arriving in Vietnam only need to self-isolate for three days.

Everyone, except children below two, must have tested negative for the novel coronavirus using the PCR method within 72 hours before departure.
