Vietnam to lift Covid-19 curbs on international flights starting February 15

[VNExpress] Vietnam will remove limits on the number of international flights coming and going from all markets starting February 15, restoring frequency to pre-pandemic levels.

Dinh Viet Son, deputy director of the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam, said Vietnam will end restrictions on international flights starting February 15, allowing flight frequency restoration to pre-pandemic levels.

Son said other countries have acknowledged the new policy and only China has not agreed to resume commercial flights with Vietnam.

On February 11, the Ministry of Transport assigned the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam to hold discussions with aviation authorities of other countries and territories on resuming regular international passenger flights with markets that had direct flights to Vietnam before the pandemic.

Vietnam had already begun a gradual resumption of international flights from the start of this year while easing quarantine requirements. In particular, vaccinated passengers now only need three days of self-quarantine.

Vietnam has recorded over 2.4 million Covid-19 cases since the pandemic began and more than 38,000 deaths. Around 74.6 million people have received at least two Covid vaccine doses.
