Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City recorded nearly 700 out of 1,100 flights either delayed or canceled during the first three days of February, with bad weather to blame. These flights were mainly transporting passengers from the southern metropolis to other localities, according to statistics from the Tan Son Nhat Operation Control Center. Bad weather, triggered by dense fog, in the northern region hampered flights from taking off or landing, resulting in flight disruptions in Ho Chi Minh City. A representative of a local air carrier told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper that all airlines tried their best to ease congestion at Tan Son Nhat International Airport. To smooth air traffic flows, the aviation authority urged air carriers to sketch out scenarios for their flight schedules.
