Vietnam Airlines, VietJet Air and Bamboo Airways have been found selling more tickets than their seating capacity.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) has requested the three airlines not to sell tickets that exceeded the number of confirmed slots.

The order was made following the CAAV’s check and monitor the ticket sale activities of local airlines.

In case, the airlines continue to ignore the request, the CAAV will not issue a licence for aviation transport.

Between January 27 and February 26, local carriers will focus on domestic air routes with over 1,000 fights per day, up 28% on-year. The number would be 1,200 flights on peak days.

Besides the daytime, airlines will also increase their flights at night from 10 pm to 7 am the next day with 140-150 flights per day.

Passengers are advised to do self-check-in via web, mobile or check-in kiosks at the domestic terminal, besides checking in at counters. They also need to carefully check private papers such as their ID, birth certificates for children and flight code.

Airlines have also called on passengers to come to airports 3-4 hours before the departure to avoid over-crowding around the Tet holiday.
