Pacific Airlines has reported to the authorities and relevant units about the return flight time slated for the next few days, the online newspaper said.

It added that the airline is expected to operate six flights on some domestic routes from and to Hanoi, Da Nang, Hue, Chu Lai, Thanh Hoa, and Vinh.

On March 18, Pacific Airlines suspended flight operations to restructure its fleet and flight network to ensure operational efficiency.

Pacific Airlines was established in 1991, and was the first low-cost airline with state-owned enterprises as shareholders.

The airline has faced operational difficulties for many years. In 2022, the company incurred a loss of nearly 2.1 trillion VND (84.5 million USD) due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
