Hanoi (VNA) – As many as
1,753 passengers from abroad came to Vietnam on 17 flights between January 1 and
3, the first three days after the resumption of regular international flights.
In a report sent to the Transport
Ministry on January 4, the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) said the passengers had arrived in the international airports of Tan Son Nhat, Noi Bai, Da

of Singapore, Turkish Airlines of Kalkon, Starlux Airlines and China Airlines of
Taiwan (China), Emirates of the UAE, and Asiana Airlines of the Republic of Korea).
According to the CAAV plan, Vietnam is
