"This is an impressive signal of recovery and growth of Vietnam's aviation industry after the COVID-19 pandemic," said the leader of Vietnam Airlines.
The Group offered services to nearly 80,000 passengers on nearly 500 flights on January 18. Later on January 29, it recorded around 93,000 passengers with around 550 flights.
Compared to the same period three years ago, the number of passengers served by Vietnam Airlines increased by some 20%.
Though the number of flights increased, Vietnam Airlines’ on-time performance (OTP) remained high, at about 90%.
To ensure good services during the holiday, the Group took a number of solutions, from making the most of wide-body aircraft, increasing night flights to enhancing ground staff and promoting online check-ins.
From now to February 5, the Group suggested passengers check in online, arrive at the airport two hours before departure for domestic flights and three hours for international flights.
