Vietnam Airlines operates first flight to Con Dao after social distancing period

National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines on October 22 morning launched its first flight to Con Dao island offshore Ba Ria-Vung Tau southern province after a social distancing period to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The flight departing from Ho Chi Minh City was operated by its affiliate Vasco.

Meanwhile, the first flight from Con Dao to HCM City was set to take off later the same day with nearly full seat occupancy. Stringent COVID-10 prevention measures were strictly carried out during the flight.

At present, Vasco is carrying out two roundtrips per day on the HCM City-Con Dao air route and one per day on the Can Tho-Con Dao route, meeting people’s travel demand and fostering tourism, trade and socio-economic development of the island in particular and Ba Ria-Vung Tau at large./.
