Vietnam Airlines has become the latest airline to temporarily suspend all international flights within its network. As it stands, the flag-carrier hopes to resume operations at the end of April.
The government of Vietnam has also unilaterally suspended visa exemptions for eight European nations - Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Germany, France and Spain.
Vietnam Airlines has celebrated the launch of its new flights to Bali, tourism capital of Indonesia, from Ho Chi Ming City. Ceremonies were hosted at both Tan Son Nhat Airport in Ho Chi Minh City and Ngurah Rai Airport in Bali.
The Vietnamese flag carrier plans to put the 787-10 – the most fuel-efficient twin-aisle airplane in the industry – on the busiest routes in its expanding network. The deal comes via a lease from Air Lease Corporation.
The agreement has been made possible by a recent decision by the United States Federal Aviation Administration to grant the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam CAT1 certification.
Advanced seat selection is now available on all international and domestic flights operated by Vietnam Airlines, enabling passengers to pre-book their preferred seat type and location prior to online check-in opening 24 hours before departure.
