VN PM rejects air route

SAIGON – Vietnam’s Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung has agreed to halt the rerouting of flights between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City that would have seen planes fly over Cambodian airspace and therefore provide fees to the Kingdom, state-run Saigon Giai Phong reported Tuesday. The decision follows recommendations from the defence and transport ministries, it added. The new route would also have taken planes through Laos. Fees to Vietnam’s neighbours would have outweighed savings on fuel from cutting the current route by 60 kilometres, the report said.
