Also, passengers were told to ask for invoices to ensure their tickets are not fake or overpriced.

In addition, the authority advised passengers to arrange their trips early and take advantage of online services to complete pre-flight procedures to save time.

CAAV noted that with the upcoming five-day holiday, Vietnam’s carriers are offering some 1.9 million seats on 8,700 flights plying domestic and international routes between April 26 and May 5 to meet the surging demand for travel.

Of the total number, 800,000 seats have been offered by Vietnam Airlines, the national flag carrier, up 78,000 seats year-on-year.

Its domestic air routes, linking the major cities of Hanoi and HCMC with Danang, Phu Quoc and Nha Trang, reportedly saw an increase of over 53,000 seats versus last year’s figure.

Further, the carrier has added more than 25,000 seats to its international routes, mainly those connecting Vietnam with Japan, South Korea, Thailand and Cambodia.

Meanwhile, Vietjet Air and Jetstar Pacific Airlines have provided 860,000 seats and 200,000 seats, respectively, on both domestic and international flights for the upcoming holidays.

To smooth flight operations and customer services during the upcoming holidays, local airlines, Airports Corporation of Vietnam and Vietnam Air Traffic Management Corporation have boosted human resources and prepared flight-related facilities.
