3. A TIME WHEN WE CONSULTED AND DESIGNED A 12-DAY TRIP BY PRIVATE JET FOR HAMILTON’S FAMILY 

During 1 month (from 23rd/11 to 22nd/12/2021), OnBird’s staffs efforted to find solutions and supports from our tourism partnerships in order to recommend flight plans and customs formalities for all ten passengers and the jet at Phu Quoc within 12 days for Mr. Roger’s family to fit into the Government’s policies and regulations. 

In order to organise this tour, we had to set up all plans that relate to it in a detailed way and ask for approval from Departure of Culture and Sports of Kiên Giang province, People’s Committee of Kiên Giang Province, Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, Immigration Department. This was unprecedented for all work because the regulations and policies changed completely before and after  the Covid-19 Pandemic.
