The CAAV has asked the Vietnam Air Traffic Management Corporation to issue a Notice To Airmen on the lifting of all restrictions on international flights from February 15, returning to the normal situation as before the outbreak of COVID-19.

According to the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV), limits on the number of inbound and outbound international flights in Vietnam will be removed. Meanwhile, regulations on entry and pandemic prevention and control for passengers entering Vietnam will continue to be implemented in line with guidelines of the Ministry of Public Security, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Ministry of Health, the authority said.

Except China, all the countries receiving Vietnam’s proposal have agreed to restore the aviation links with Vietnam, it said.

Currently, air routes linking Vietnam and European countries, Australia and the US have been resumed. However, Japan and the Republic of Korea have still applied restrictions on passengers from Vietnam as part of their efforts to prevent COVID-19 spreading.

Deputy Minister of Transport Le Anh Tuan has directed the CAAV to discuss with foreign aviation authorities on the resumption of regular flights with markets that had direct air routes to Vietnam before the pandemic, except those that have been re-opened to Vietnam since January.

The frequency of flights on the routes will be gradually increased in a roadmap to ensure the principle of safely, flexibly adapting to and effectively controlling COVID-19, creating favourable conditions for travelling activities with strict implementation of guidelines on medical supervision on passengers entering Vietnam.

Tuan also asked the CAAV to report to the Transport Ministry on the results of the re-operation of international flights in February so that the ministry can submit a report to the Prime Minister.

The Vietnamese aviation industry is currently ready in all aspects to operate the entire international flight network like before the COVID-19 outbreak, the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) has told Deputy Transport Minister Le Anh Tuan.

Deputy Minister Tuan assigned the CAAV to discuss with aviation management agencies of partner countries on the resumption of regular international flights to markets that had already opened direct flights to Vietnam before the COVID-19 outbreak, in addition to those launched in January.

The frequency of these routes will increase gradually to ensure the principles of safe and flexible adaptation to and effective control of the pandemic.

The CAAV must report to the Ministry of Transport on the results of the resumption of international routes in February so that the ministry can summarise and report it to the Prime Minister, the official requested.

Regarding this issue, a CAAV leading official said that the authority has just worked with the Thai aviation authorities, and this country has also agreed to reopen air routes and with no limit of the number of flights.

Thus, to date, except for China, all countries that Vietnam proposed to restore air routes have shown their agreement.

Notably, in the near future, international flights to new markets such as the Middle East, Turkey will be opened, the CAAV leader added.

He cited the direction of the Prime Minister as saying that the reopening of international routes as normal is not later than March 30.
