This is the first official regular international commercial flight to Vietnam since the outbreak of COVID-19.
Passengers will be carried by Airbus A350 aircraft which consists of over 300 seats.
Due to special requirements on epidemic prevention and control, the tickets will not be sold via the airlines’ website. Therefore, customers can buy tickets via official agents of the carrier in Vietnam and the RoK.
Vietnam Airlines is set to organise two more flights from Hanoi to Tokyo on September 25 and 30, and one from HCM City to Tokyo on September 30.
Budget carrier Vietjet has also announced resumption of flights to Japan, the RoK, and Taiwan (China) starting September 29.
