Operated by national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines, a commercial flight from Seoul, the Republic of Korea (RoK), landed at Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport on September 25 noon, marking a milestone in the restoration of the country’s air transport after months of disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Using the long-range wide-body airliner Airbus A350, flight No VN417 took off from Incheon International Airport in the RoK, bringing back about 100 passengers, mostly returning Vietnamese and Korean investors and experts. The RoK is among the six destinations in Asia with which the Vietnamese Government has decided to resume international flights since the country sealed off its borders on March 22, in addition to Japan, China, Taiwan (China), Laos and Cambodia, which have the COVID-19 situation under control.
