Local airlines to raise prices of domestic flights

The hanoitimes- A number of domestic airlines said they would increase their fares shortly after the Ministry of Finance (MoF) issued new ceiling prices for economy air fares o­n domestic routes.

Top carrier Vietnam Airlines will raise its domestic air fares for six routes as of next week.

The price of o­ne-way trips o­n the Hanoi - HCMC route will increase from VND1.05 million (US$50.7) to VND2.227 million ($107.6), excluding value-added tax (VAT).

However, Vietnam Airlines said it would offer new fare types which would be lower than MoF ceiling prices by up to 50 percent.

For its part, low-cost carrier Jetstar Pacific will increase its o­ne-way fare o­n this route to VND850,000 ($40.47), with the most expensive type costing VND2.45 million ($116.6) and Air Mekong’s non-stop o­ne-way fare for the Hanoi-Phu Quoc route will be increased to VND2.7 million ($128.57).

Air Mekong is also offering passengers a 40 percent discount o­n flights from Hanoi to Phu Quoc as long as return dates fall o­n or before the coming weekend.

Round-trip tickets for this route are currently listed at VND3.4 million ($161.9).
