Vietnam Airlines recently announced that it would add more than 1,350 fights on 12 domestic routes during the peak summer season from July 1 to August 15.
"With the increase of flights, the airline expects to ease overload due to increased travel demands," said Vietnam Airlines representative Nguyen Hoang Dung.
According to the air carrier, total transport will be increased by 1.6 million seats, a rise of 12 percent compared to the same period last year.
On the Hanoi-HCM City route, total transport will be increased to more than 460,000 seats, an average of 5,000 seats/day/way. The airline will also provide a total of 210,000 seats from HCM City to Da Nang and 190,000 seats from Ha Noi to Da Nang.
Flights on key tourism routes to Hue, Nha Trang, Da Lat and Vinh cities, and Phu Quoc and Con Dao islands are also set to be increased.
