Jetstar Pacific, Air Mekong allow apricot, cherry blossoms on board
Two Vietnamese airlines, Jetstar Pacific and Air Mekong, have announced charges for transporting hoa mai (apricot) and hoa dao (cherry blossoms) in the lead up to the Lunar New Year holiday, or Tet.The budget carrier Jetstar Pacific charges VND250,000 (less than US$12) for an apricot branch on its flights between HCMC and the central coastal city of Danang and VND350,000 (some US$16.6) for the flights from HCMC to Hanoi, Haiphong and Vinh and vice versa.


The private carrier Air Mekong will collect VND350,000 for a 120cm x 40cm branch of cherry blossoms on board its flights from Hanoi to the southern resort island of Phu Quoc, Vietnam’s commercial hub HCMC, and the Central Highlands cities of Dalat, Pleiku and Buon Ma Thuot until February 10.

 Jetstar Pacific said it would accept branches of apricot and cherry blossoms measuring not more than 120 centimeters in length and 50 centimeters in width on its domestic flights until February 7.Jetstar Pacific transports a maximum of 30 branches of apricot and cherry blossoms on each flight while Air Mekong allows no more than 10 branches on its aircraft.The two carriers said passengers had to have their apricot and cherry branches covered with bags or carton and transported as their check-in luggage. They have to pay charges for their apricot and cherry branches at ticketing offices before departure.Traditionally, Vietnamese families decorate apricot or cherry branches or plants in their houses during Tet, which falls on January 23. Tet is the biggest and longest public holiday in Vietnam.
