Vietnam Airlines says to maintain fares at Tet

Monday, 02 February 2015

National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines said Wednesday it will not raise ticket prices for any domestic flights during the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday (Tet).

The pledge was announced by the carrier’s general director, Pham Ngoc Minh, after the government announced a lift on fare caps.

The decision, issued last week, allows carriers to fix their own prices based on demand. The lift applies only to certain domestic routes, however, on which two or more airlines fly.

Carriers may also choose to lower certain fares.
