Aeroflot resumes flights to Hanoi

Russian airline Aeroflot this week resumed twice-weekly direct flights between Moscow and the Vietnamese capital Hanoi after a break of almost one year due to technical reasons, an airline spokesman told Xinhua news agency. Boeing 767s now make the nine-hour flight from Russia on Monday mornings and Thursday evenings local time, and from Hanoi on Monday evenings and Friday afternoons, said an Aeroflot spokesman in Vietnam.
