It will also fly three times a week from Hanoi to Mumbai starting 1 September and from Ho Chi Minh City to Mumbai four times a week starting 31 August.

Once India reopens to international travel, the airline intends to resume its already established services from Ho Chi Minh City to Delhi increasing flights from three to seven flights per week.

On the Hanoi- Delhi route it will increase frequencies from three to seven per week. There are no firm dates for the resumption of the two routes until India announces the end of its international travel ban.
