The Vietnamese authorities began evacuating around 80,000 people from and around Da Nang after nearly a hundred days of no transmission from the community after a new outbreak of the corona virus was found in this part of the country.
The Vietnamese Civil Aviation Authority (CAAV) has instructed airlines to increase the number of flights from the city, a popular tourist destination, to get these people out of the city, according to the Vietnamese news portal VNExpress.
As a result, Bamboo Airways, Pacific Airlines and Vietjet Air have given approval to operate more flights. This decision still has to be approved by the Ministry of Transport.
With this in mind, CAAV President Dinh Viet Thang stressed the need to speed up the process, as passengers leaving the city may be left without money or accommodation.
