To overcome the overload, CAAV required the relevant units to promptly clarify the demand of the overnight parking of the airlines, plan the allocation, arrange the parking lots at several airports during the long-lasting pandemic.

Particularly, the head of CAAV stressed that the relevant units need to maximize the parking lots overnight at the approved home-base of airlines, avoiding the concentration at Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat International Airports.

If the airlines do not have the main maintenance and management facilities at Noi Bai and Tan Son Nhat airports, the relevant units have to review and restore the temporary parking lots overnight or allocate the parking at closed taxiways and the limitedly operated ones to minimize the influence of the airports’ exploitation.
