Low-cost carrier Jetstar Pacific announced several flight changes for those destined for the Cat Bi and Vinh airports on March 17 due to bad weather.

Flight BL510 departing from Ho Chi Minh City at 6:50 am changed course to land at Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport instead of its origin destination- the Cat Bi international airport in the northern port city of Hai Phong.

The carrier took measures to ensure its customers were transported from Hanoi to Hai Phong as well as transversely from Hai Phong to Hanoi for departures to Ho Chi Minh City.

On the same day, other two flights connecting Ho Chi Minh City and Hai Phong city, BL516 and BL517, were rerouted to Noi Bai airport.

Departure and landing times for flights at the Vinh airport in central Nghe An province were also changed due to fog.

According to a Jetstar Pacific executive, bad weather in Hai Phong and Vinh had a ripple effect on flight schedules at other airports.-VNA
