The flights between Moscow and the capital cities of Finland, India, Vietnam and Qatar had remained suspended for quite some time in 2020. Now Russia has decided to resume air travel with these four countries from January 27, 2021.

With a 0.7 percent increase rate in COVID-19 cases, Russian authorities have decided that after a certain epidemiological criteria is met, flights will resume between the Russian capital and New Delhi, Helsinki, Hanoi and Doha. This resumption in air travel is a result of the observation that the four countries have witnessed a drop in their respective infection rates.

The crisis centre has decided to resume reciprocal flights with twice a week frequency between Moscow-Hanoi, Moscow-Helsinki and St. Petersburg-Helsinki, Moscow-New Delhi and Moscow- Doha.

While the Russian government is looking forward to flight resumption, Vietnam has not yet decided if it will reopen its travel corridors, due to the fear of letting in any new variants of the virus into the country.

Flights have been stopped in early January between Hanoi-UK and Hanoi-South Africa. Currently, Vietnam is only allowing repatriation flights and all inbound international travel is suspended, temporarily.
