Stimulating domestic market
The impact of the COVID-19 epidemic and the closing to international visitors forecast that Vietnam's tourism industry will face a serious "unsuccessful" year. However, the shift to boost the domestic market, along with the contributions of many ministries, localities, and businesses, is bringing positive results to the tourism industry.
According to statistics of the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, after two months of launching the program "Vietnamese people traveling to Vietnam", domestic tourism activities have clearly recovered. Room occupancy has increased by 50-60% in the middle of the week and by 80-90% by the end of the week. The number of domestic visitors in June 2020 reached 7 million, an increase of 2.3 times compared to May 2020.
Travel website Skift of the United States states that Vietnam's tourism industry has strongly rebounded after the epidemic, surpassing Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Philippines. And Bloomberg appreciates that "Vietnam has escaped the tourist trap COVID-19", becoming a special case in the world when it is soon opened to domestic tourism and quickly recovered.

An article on Reuters also said that Vietnam and New Zealand are two countries that control COVID-19 well, but after this outbreak, Vietnam has done better than New Zealand in the campaign of restoring tourism. According to Reuters, if New Zealand is waiting to increase the number of foreign tourists, Vietnam has been more agile when launching the main stimulus program for domestic tourists.
Aviation creates "leverage" to increase tourists
Speaking of the recovery of Vietnam's tourism industry, it is impossible not to mention the role of the aviation industry. It is the airlines that have created "leverage" to increase domestic tourists through many cooperation programs to stimulate tourism and many attractive ticket promotions.
Vietjet alone has signed a series of travel stimulus agreements with localities such as Hanoi, Nghe An, Thanh Hoa ... and at the same time, implemented a promotional program for "Immense Vietnam- Green flight with Vietjet. ”
Vietjet and Vietnam National Administration of Tourism have signed a memorandum of cooperation on tourism promotion in the period of 2019-2021 and are actively responding to the program "Vietnamese people visit Vietnam."
Reuters notes that air travel is a popular mean of transportation in Vietnam. Therefore, Vietnamese airlines have opened more routes, launched many promotions to stimulate tourism.
Aviation Voice website affirms that Vietnam's tourism has recovered thanks to the efforts of the Government and airlines and the tourism industry to actively introduce stimulus packages for domestic tourism.
According to Aviation Voice, airlines like Vietjet have strongly reduced fares, attracted a large number of tourists for the tourism industry, and helped the airline fill seats on domestic flights, recover 100% extraction capacity.
With recent market movements and information from travel agencies, the number of domestic tourists in July and August and the last months of the year is expected to continue to rise. Therefore, if being supported by new policies to work best after the pandemic, airlines will continue to contribute to reviving the tourism industry, contributing to the overall development of the economy this year./.
