VF leaders plan to work with a Vietnamese airline to create the conditions for a Vietnamese team to use a private airplane directly from Hanoi to Bacolod (Philippines), the semi-final of the AFF Cup 2018 semi-finals here on December 2.
This plan is based on the fact that the Vietnamese team has to travel in two new cities to the venue. Total driving time may take up to 15 hours. This will certainly affect the strength of Vietnam team members before the first leg semi-finals.
