Low budget carrier Vietjet Air has announced its plan to offer a special service for passengers who wish to carry peach flowers and ochna integerrima via checked-in luggage on board of its flights during the upcoming Lunar New Year (Tet) holidays.
Accordingly, passengers on separate domestic routes from and to Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Lat and Da Nang, are eligible for this service, at a cost of VND450,000/bunch, excluding taxes and fees. The service will be available from January 15 until February 20.
Each passenger is allowed to carry one bunch of either flower. The maximum dimensions are 150cm x 40cm x 40cm. Every flight is scheduled to carry up to 30 bunches.
Peach flowers and ochna integerrima should be bunched with firm covers and a bunch can be comprised of up to two branches. Peach flowers and ochna integerrima in the form of plants or with pots and soil are not allowed, even via cargo services.
The special service can be booked at www.vietjetair.com, Vietjet ticketing offices and agencies nationwide or via the call centre 1900 1886.
Vietjet also informs passengers about hand luggage for their travel during the high season of the Tet holidays. One passenger can only bring one handbag with the maximum dimensions of 56cm x 36cm x 23cm and one small handbag (includes only one of below bags), and the total weight must not exceed 7 kg.
Some other flowers (excluding peach flowers and ochna integerrima) can be carried on board if their weight and dimensions do not exceed the hand luggage regulations. Flowers on board are considered as hand luggage. Passengers bringing flowers on board should check that the total weight of hand luggage does not exceed 7 kg per passenger in accordance with the airline’s regulations.
