CAAV Director Dinh Viet Thang suggested the ministry permit the authority to inform aviation authorities of France, Germany, the UK and Russia on the resumption of regular international passenger flights, with the initial weekly frequency of 10 flights per leg for each side.

CAAV also sent documents to aviation authorities of Australia to inform that airlines of both countries can resume regular flights between the two nations with 10 flights per leg a week.

It also wants to take the initiative in working with countries and territories to decide on markets and frequency based on demand as well as aviation agreements.

In the first week of this year, 16 regular passenger commerce flights arrived in Viet Nam from the US, Japan, Thailand and Cambodia, among others, bringing nearly 1,000 passengers.

The authority's statistics indicated that about 140,000 overseas Vietnamese are hoping to return home to celebrate the upcoming Tet (Lunar New Year) – Viet Nam’s longest and biggest traditional festival. In excess of 30,000 passengers per week are projected to fly home in the coming time.

CAAV has informed authorities in the Republic of Korea, Japan, Singapore and Taiwan (China) on the increase of weekly passenger flights to 14 per leg amid rising demand.
