Domestic carriers made efforts in July to improve their on-time performance rate despite an increase in the number of flights, the Civil Aviation Administration of Viet Nam (CAAV) said.

There were about 25,657 flights during the month — up 5 per cent year-on-year. Of the total, 21,736 flights or 84.7 per cent arrived on time, 177 were cancelled, while the remaining were delayed mainly due to late arrivals.

Among the four airlines, the Vietnam Air Services Co, VASCO, recorded the highest percentage of on-time flights — 94.7 per cent. Jetstar Pacific came next with 87.4 per cent of on-time flights, followed by the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines with 85.4 per cent and Vietjet with 82.2 per cent.

The rates of delayed and cancelled flights of four domestic airlines over past six months were 12.2 per cent and 0.5 per cent, respectively, recording a year-on-year fall of 3.6 percentage points and 0.1 percentage points, according to CAAV.

Earlier in June, the Noi Bai International Airport had asked all domestic airlines to improve operations, minimise the number of delays, and enhance passenger experience. — VNS
