Danang recently implemented a 14-day quarantine
policy for anyone arriving from either Hanoi or Saigon.
Vietnam Airlines has reported that since the city
introduced the measure, demand for air travel between Danang and
the two cities "has plummeted".
Because of the drop in demand, Vietnam
Airlines has adjusted its flight schedule as follows:
- Vietnam Airlines will operate three return
flights per week between Hanoi and Danang and Saigon and Danang
every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
- The airline will also continue to operate
one daily return flight between Hanoi and Saigon.
- All other domestic routes have been temporarily
suspended until further notice.
The flight crew on all flights are equipped with
protective gear, including suits, gloves, face masks, and glasses.
Vietnam Airlines administers temperature
checks for all passengers as well as flight crew members and
ensures health declaration forms are completed before boarding.
Passengers are also seated apart from one another
and they are required to wear face masks during the flight.
All of Vietnam Airlinesí domestic flights are
thoroughly disinfected upon landing in Hanoi, Danang, and Saigon,
and are disinfected once more at the end of the day.
