Tour agents and airlines have reported rising demand during Reunification Day and May Day holidays.

This year's Reunification Day and International Labour Day holidays will last up to five days from April 27 to May 1. Many people have already booked tours for their families since early April.

Plane tickets from Hanoi and HCM City to well-known destinations such as Danang, Nha Trang or Phu Quoc are also running out quickly. Popular outbound tours are packages to travel to Japan, the Republic of Korea, Dubai, Thailand and Singapore.

The tour packages this holiday had increased in price by 10% because of rising accommodation and transportation costs.

Most people booked tickets early because of cheaper prices.

A Vietnam Airlines' economy class ticket from HCM City to Phu Quoc is now listed at 43 USD max.

In order to meet rising demand, many airlines have increased flights for the holiday. Vietnam Airlines will prepare nearly 800,000 seats, an increase of 78,000 seats compared to last year, for both domestic and international routes from April 26 to May 5.-VNA
