Hanoi (VNA) – The national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines announced on September 4 that it will cancel its flights between Japan’s Osaka and the airports of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh during September 4-5 due to Typhoon Jebi in the west of Japan, which forced Osaka airport to suspend operations the same day.

Accordingly, the airline will cancel flights VN330, VN331, VN320, and VN321.
