Vietnam targets international flights daily from September

After a period of time, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc set out a plan to accept holder “passport vaccine” for foreigners entering Vietnam. While ministries are looking for more solutions to apply, the Vietnam Aviation Administration is currently proposing to apply international commercial flights.
Vietnam is aiming to resume regular international passenger flights, targeting daily flights to partner jurisdictions in September.

The Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam (CAAV) has submitted to the Ministry of Transport a proposal to increase international flights in three phases, the Vietnam Aviation Administration said in a March 31 statement.

Thereby the commercial flight route can be applied as follows when using a Vaccine passport:

In first step, the targeted flights are all Vietnamese national package and hotel travel packages serving 14-day quarantine. Special for Vietnam original lived oversea and professional foreign accept quarantine hotels. No timeline has been provided.

The second step, which will be implemented from July, will focus on re-establishing air connections with other countries. There will be four weekly round-trip flights per airline in each destination country, including Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. The flights must also comply with the quarantine of Vietnam and the airports of arrival.

The third and final step begins in September. Vietnam is targeting daily round-trip flights to each destination country. During this period, Vietnam will allow entry of foreigners with negative Covid-19 test results or certificate of vaccines to serve for a shortened home quarantine from seven to 14 days.

The launch of the final phase will depend on the progress of Vietnam’s immunization program and it plans to restore air connectivity with countries with similar immunization procedures and standards to limit the spread of Covid-19.

CAAV says local authorities will recognize international vaccine certificates issued by government-approved immunization facilities or the World Health Organization’s immunization system as a “passport Vaccine”.

Cirium data shows that seat capacity on international flights to Vietnam from January to March is 115,000-149,000 per month, far from 1,8-1,96 million seats in the same period in 2019.
