Vietnam Airlines suspends flights to Russia

MOSCOW. March 23 (Interfax) - Vietnam Airlines has suspended its Hanoi-Moscow service until further notice with effect from March 25, VN Express reports.

Vietnam Airlines is suspending the flights because it needs to "review procedures and regulations related to aircraft insurance and flight operations to Russia," the report said. It will refund passengers who have bought tickets or change their tickets to other flights.

Vietnam Airlines, the only Vietnamese carrier currently flying to Russia, is "working hard with relevant authorities to resume flights as soon as possible," the report said.

The airline only resumed the service in late January after a two-year pause due to Covid-19, operating one flight per week.
