Hanoi (VNA) – The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) has asked airports, airlines, and relevant parties nationwide to make preparations to serve people’s travel demand while ensuring traffic and pandemic safety during the New Year, Lunar New Year, and spring festivals.

In a recent directive, the CAAV requested the Airports Corporation of Vietnam, Van Don International Airport, Vietnam Air Traffic Management Corporation, Vietnamese airlines, and airport authorities to set up steering committees for the task, publicise hotlines available around the clock to deal with information related to their duties, and put in place plans to meet travel demand during the holidays.

Particularly, it told airports to tighten control over aviation security and safety, ready personnel for the tasks, and work closely with local authorities to minimise traffic congestion, especially at Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City.

Meanwhile, carriers were required to prepare for increasing flights, with the aviation infrastructure and security taken into account; devise measures for minimising flight delay or cancellation; and boost control to guarantee flight safety.

Aviation service providers were asked to augment examination to ensure security and safety for flights and passengers.

Besides, all the related parties also have to continue improving the awareness and sense of responsibility towards the COVID-19 prevention and control, the CAAV’s directive said./.
