HANOI (Vietnam News/ANN): The Ministry of Transport permitted Vân Đồn International Airport in the northern province of Quảng Ninh to reopen from 6.01am on Wednesday (March 3) with the Covid-19 pandemic put under control in the province and the airport deemed safe to transport passengers.

The airport was temporarily closed from Jan 29 after a Covid-19 outbreak involving several of the airport’s security staff was detected.

The national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines announced earlier it will resume flights between HCM City and Quảng Ninh on Wednesday, becoming the first to restart flights to Vân Đồn airport since the cluster broke out.

From March 3 to 17, there will be one weekly flight between the two destinations on Wednesdays.

Flights will take off at 1pm from HCM City and 3:45pm from Vân Đồn.
