VIETNAM Airlines (VNA) will raise from tomorrow onwards its economy- and business-class domestic airfares by 15-20 per cent and five per cent, respectively.
VNA’s price hike follows a move by the country’s Ministry of Transport to increase the price ceiling for domestic airfares.
“It is expected that Jetstar and Air Mekong will follow with increases shortly,” said Exotissimo Travel Vietnam general manager George Ehrlich-Adam in an email to industry partners.
Ehrlich-Adam said that in order to avoid any cost increase for confirmed bookings from now leading into next year, Exotissimo would issue all domestic air tickets latest by today.
Exotissimo will add the applicable fare increase to any new invoices issued for confirmed bookings from tomorrow onwards.
