National carrier Vietnam Airlines made adjustments to its international flight schedule on Monday in response to the anticipated arrival of Typhoon Talim, the first storm forecast to impact Vietnam this year.

The departure of flights VN592 and VN593 connecting Hanoi and Hong Kong, as well as flights VN594 and VN595 between Ho Chi Minh City and Hong Kong, scheduled for Monday, have been subjected to a seven-hour delay.

Flight VN430 from Da Nang, central Vietnam and bound for Seoul, South Korea is expected to arrive at Incheon International Airport 45 minutes behind schedule, while the departure time from Da Nang remains unchanged.

Flight VN318 traveling from Da Nang to Tokyo, Japan is anticipated to arrive at Narita Airport 25 minutes late, while the departure time from Da Nang remains unaffected. 

Additionally, there is a possibility of other flights being affected by the adjustments to the operational schedule.

The carrier will continue to monitor weather conditions and provide updates on any additional changes to the flight schedule.

As of 1:00 pm on Monday (Vietnam time), Typhoon Talim was centered about 280 kilometers southwest of Hong Kong, according to the South China Morning Post.

Based on the weather forecast issued by Vietnam’s National Center for Hydro-meteorological Forecasting, the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam has identified Van Don and Cat Bi International Airports, located in Quang Ninh Province and Hai Phong City, as those likely to be impacted by gusty and strong winds and thunderstorms. 

Additionally, Noi Bai International Airprort in Hanoi and Tho Xuan Airport in north-central Thanh Hoa Province are expected to experience heavy rainfall and strong winds resulting from the storm circulation.

As the storm’s center is forecast to be over the Gulf of Tonkin on Tuesday morning, Cat Bi and Van Don airports were not directly impacted by the storm on Monday.

By noon on Monday, airlines had not yet provided any information regarding changes to flight schedules to and from those two airports.
