As we have mentioned several times before, Vietnam Airlines are commencing their direct flights from London to Vietnam on the 8th December. This is a very exciting development for Vietnam tourism as it will shave as much as 12 hours of the average return journey time. There will initially be 4 flights weekly, flying into Hanoi and Saigon.
The schedule runs thus: Hanoi to London, two flights per week on Monday and Thursday at 23:40 and 06:20. Ho Chi Minh to London: two flights per week on Tuesday and Friday at 23:20 and 06:20.
London to Hanoi, two flights per week on Tuesday and Friday at noon and 06:30 and from London to Ho Chi Minh, two flights per week on Saturday and Wednesday, at noon and 07:10.
They will be flying Boeing 777’s.
There has never been a better time to holiday in Vietnam: the direct flights make it much easier and it is still great value – talk to us about this exciting, vibrant and changing country.
