Vietnam Airlines, the national flag carrier, has announced it will officially open two new air routes in December.
From December 2 the airline will begin offering four direct Airbus A321 flights between HCM City and Jakarta per week—on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.
Flights will depart from HCM City at 10am and from Jakarta at 13.45 pm.
A Vietnam Airlines representative said the new route is the first to fly directly between Vietnam and Indonesia and the second international route the airline has launched.
From December 12, Vietnam Airlines’ domestic network will include a direct route between Hanoi and Phu Quoc. The route will be serviced by five Airbus A321 flights per week on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday—departing from Hanoi at 10am and Phu Quoc at 13.15 pm.
Sales marking the launch occasions are offering return tickets on the HCM City–Jakarta route for only VND2,905,000 million, a 22 percent saving, and on the HCM City–Jakarta–Bali route for only VND7,085,000, down 11 percent. These prices exclude taxes and fees and are only available for tickets purchased between November 22 to December 31 2012 and flights departing between December 1 2012 to March 30 2013.
The airline will also offer one-way tickets on the Hanoi–Phu Quoc route for the attractive price of VND120,000. The offer is valid for passengers purchasing tickets from December 2 to December 27 2012 and intending to depart from December 12 to December 21.
