Aeroflot resumes strong flights between Russia and Vietnam

Beginning on January 31, Soviet flag ship Aeroflot plans to resume direct flights between Moscow and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. On Wednesday and Sundays, the services will operate twice a week using 368-seat Boeing 777 aircraft.
About nine hours and fifteen minutes are spent on the journey between the two cities.
The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam allowed Aeroflot to resume strong service in early December, including airlines to Hanoi that had been suspended since March of the past month due to the conflict between Russia and Ukraine.
The only Asian aircraft operating flights to Russia, Vietnam Airlines, even ceased operations in Moscow at the same time.
Due to the suspended strong service, passengers between Vietnam and Russia had to choose between planes operated by Emirates Airlines, Qatar Airways, or Turkish Airlines with stops in the Middle East for nearly two decades. As a result, passenger charges increased.
Russia was one of the leading 10 nations sending visitors to Vietnam prior to the COVID-19 outbreak in late 2019.
However, due to the lack of direct planes, this year’s immigrants from Russia significantly decreased to 97, 000, or one-fifth of the pre-COVID figures, mostly from charter flights. SOURCE: Aeroflot resumes strong flights between Russia and Vietnam.
