Passenger service fees for overseas flights from Ho Chi Minh City's Tan Son Nhat International Airport will be raised by around 30 percent to US$18, the Ministry of Finance has said in a new decision.

The fees at Noi Bai Airport in Hanoi will remain at $14 a person and that at Da Nang Airport reduced from $12 to $8 based on local weather and price conditions, according to the decision signed last weekend, local newswire Vnexpress reported.

Other airports will charge $8 per passenger.

The service fee for domestic flights will range between VND30,000-40,000 per person, the ministry said.

Children between 2-12 years of age will get a 50 percent discount in all cases.

The ministry earlier allowed carriers to raise ticket price caps from March 1. National carrier Vietnam Airlines was the first one to announce new prices starting next Wednesday, with an average increase of 12-13 percent increase from the current ones in average.

Other carriers including the low-cost Jetstar Pacific have also sent their plans for new prices to the Vietnam Civil Aviation Administration.
