The Southeast Asian nation of Vietnam is preparing to reopen international flights between the country and both Japan and Korea.
According to a report from The Vietnam News Agency, the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam (CAAV) is planning to resume air routes to the northeast Asian countries starting September 15.
The plan will have eight total flights per week – four to Japan and four with South Korea . Travelers on the flights arriving in Vietnam will be subject to a mandatory 14-day quarantine.
Prior to the suspension of international flights to Vietnam in late March, several airlines such as national carrier Vietnam Airlines and budget carrier VietJet operated flights to Japan and Korea. No indication has been made as to how the flights will be allocated among the airlines.
While looking to resume flights to Japan and Korea, other international services will remain suspended.
