Vietnam Airlines announced on Tuesday evening that it will temporarily suspend regular flights on the Hanoi - Moscow air route, starting from March 25, until further notice.

Explaining reasons for the suspension in a statement, the national flag carrier said it needs to review and clarify procedures, requirements, and regulations related to insurance and flight operations to Russia.

It is not clear how long the suspension will last as the airlines announced in its statement that it will temporarily suspend the service until further notice, and expressed deep regret about this 'force majeure.'

For passengers who have bought tickets, the airline said that it will offer free ticket refunds or change to other flights when the operation of the route is resumed. 

It recommended that passengers regularly monitor for updated information in the next announcements.

Vietnam Airlines, the only carrier operating a regular route to Russia at present, also confirmed that it is working hard with relevant agencies in order to bring the route back on stream as soon as possible.

The airline just resumed the regular route between Hanoi and Moscow early this year after nearly two years of closure due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
