Meanwhile, the company is set to reopen air links connecting the country to the UK, France, Germany, Russia, Australia, Hong Kong (China) and China. Malaysia in the second phase.

In an online chat on Dec. 23, Vietnam National Tourism Administration Director General Nguyen Trung Khanh said that if the country lags behind in resuming international flights, it will lose chances not only to attract tourists, but also to recover other sectors, including the aviation industry.

He noted that over the past nearly two years, the COVID-19 pandemic has had an extremely negative impact on all aspects, with tourism and aviation being among the first to be hit hard. These two sectors should continue to face many difficulties in the years to come.

The reopening of shops
international flights is urgently needed, especially in this year-end period when people, especially overseas Vietnamese, have a strong demand to return to their home countries, the official added./.
