VTV.vn - The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) has projected 2.7 million seats for the upcoming Lunar New Year which will come more than a month later.

Travelers during the country’s longest festival, always the peak of the transport demand, will be carried by about 14,000 flights from December 29, 2021 to January 18, 2022.

The figures are 70-75 percent of those a year ago, with carriers focusing on flights from Ho Chi Minh City to northern localities, and those to tourist destinations.

The CAAV said the cause of the decrease is the complicated development of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the reluctance of workers in coming back to southern economic hubs.
