Vietnam Airlines Adds New Routes In-Country
Flights to save Vietnam travelers time!
May 22, 2011
Vietnam’s flagship airlines has added several new routes to its domestic schedule. Several will offer new possibilities to regular Vietnam traveler itineraries and one will effectively be able to add almost a whole day to any itinerary that includes Halong Bay and/or the surrounding area.
The new prize schedule will be the new Haiphong to Danang / Danang to Haiphong service. This service will allow Vietnam travelers to avoid one of the legs of a round trip from Hanoi to Halong Bay. The one way trip alone takes a half day of normal road travel and an over night stay in Hanoi before heading south to Danang. Travelers will now be able to leave the Halong Bay / Haiphong area and fly to Danang – then travel to Hue or Hoi An in the time they normally would be spending on the road back to Hanoi. The same time saving will be available to travelers headed north from the Hoi An, Danang and Hue area. They can fly directly into the Haiphong/Halong Bay area, spend their time relaxing on a Halong Bay cruise. Then head to Hanoi. Depending on individual itineraries, this flight might add as much as a full day of sight seeing rather than traveling.
The other new flights will allow travelers with time schedules that are jammed to catch flight to their next destination directly, rather than backtracking to Saigon / Ho Chi Minh City. The new Can Tho – Phu Quoc schedule allows travelers to fly directly from Can Tho to Phu Quoc rather than returning to Saigon.
There will now be daily service from Rach Gia to Phu Quoc.
The new Can Tho to Con Dao allows a direct connection to Con Dao Island, home of the Six Senses luxury resort at Con Dao, rather than being routed through Saigon.
