Vietnamese low-cost carrier VietJet Air has begun flying passenger freighter flights, as it gradually begins resuming domestic passenger service.
The airline states in an update that it is operating about 10 cargo flights daily, with services to points within Vietnam and to Japan, South Korea and Southeast Asia.
Domestically, VietJet is flying passenger freight flights between Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, and has just launched cargo flights between Can Tho and Cam Ranh.
Apart from transporting goods and foodstuffs, these flights will also transport medical equipment and supplies, the carrier states.
Separately, VietJet adds that it has received approval to resume operating one daily return passenger flight each, from Danang to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
It will also add an additional daily flight to its Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh City route. The schedule changes will take effect 16 April.
The carrier suspended flights to North and Southeast Asia due to travel restrictions arising from the coronavirus outbreak, and has been operating a skeleton schedule for domestic flights.
