Hanoi (VNA) – The on-time performance (OTP) rates of national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines and low-cost Jetstar Pacific were reported high in the days ahead of the Lunar New Year (Tet) festival, representatives from the two firms said on February 14.

Accordingly, from February 8-13, Vietnam Airlines operated nearly 440 flights a day, 90 percent of which was on-time.

Meanwhile, Jetstar Pacific served 30,000 passengers on 156 flights from the Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi. Only several flights were delayed for 29 minutes on average due to objective reasons.

Vietnam Airlines and Jetstar Pacific have actively prepared plans and increased resources, as well as strictly reviewed all stages in order to provide the best services for passengers and minimise delays because of subjective reasons.

To meet the increasing travel demand during Tet holiday, the two firms added seven flights (nearly 1,300 seats) between Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi from February 12-14, the 27th and 28th days of the last lunar month./.
