Vietnam Airlines announced that it will close check-in counters ten minutes earlier for both domestic and international flights starting December 1.
Accordingly, check-in will close 50 minutes prior to the departure of international flights and 40 minutes prior to departure for domestic flights, the national flag carrier said in a release.
Meanwhile, boarding gates will close 15 minutes before departure.
The check-in deadline for Vietnam Airlines flights at international airports, including France’s Charles de Gaulle, Frankfurt and London Gatwick, will remain an hour before departure.
The airline’s counter will open three hours before departure for international flights and two hours before departure for domestic flights.
Check-in and boarding times can be modified to accommodate the new departure time in the event that a flight is delayed, the airline announced.
Passengers are recommended to arrange check-in and boarding based on the new timeline, it said.
