Due to shortages in the number of aircraft resulting from airlines restructuring their fleets, and engine maintenance, the CAAV has requested the airlines to consider increasing capacity on routes from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City to other localities, especially on April 27 - 28 and May 1 - 3, ensuring compatibility with infrastructure and security and safety of flights.

Vietnamese airlines are expected to provide around 900,000 seats on domestic routes, especially on routes between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

Accordingly, as many as 657,000 seats and 3,400 flights will be offered on routes from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to localities nationwide, up 4.2% in the number of seats, and 5.5% in the number of flights compared to the same period in 2023, respectively.

Airlines have also been granted adjusted slots at airports across the country to help optimize flight schedules, and extend the operating time of aircraft fleets, especially evening and nighttime slots.
