Following the announcement of the Ho Chi Minh City – Melbourne route, Vietjet continues to expand its footprint in Australia with a new direct route linking Ho Chi Minh City with Sydney. The first direct flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Melbourne ((Tullamarine Airport) will take off on 8 April with six flights per week, operating every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from Ho Chi Minh City at 10:55 am and landing in Melbourne at 10:35 pm (local time). The return flights from Melbourne to Ho Chi Minh City will operate every Sunday, Wednesday, and Friday, departing at 12:30 am and landing at 6:30 am (local time).

The flights connecting Ho Chi Minh City and Sydney will operate from 12 April with six flights per week. The flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Sydney every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday take off at 7:30 pm and land at 7:20 am (local time). The flights from Sydney to Ho Chi Minh City on every Monday, Thursday and Saturday take off at 10:15 am and land at 4:30 pm (local time).

Vietjet Vice President Nguyen Thanh Son said: “With our state-of-the-art widebody fleet and all-in service packages, Vietjet is poised to expand its international network and boost trade and tourism. Our direct flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Melbourne and Sydney make it easier and more convenient for business, education and tourism between Vietnam and Australia. As Vietjet plans to further expand its network to Brisbane, Darwin and Adelaide, we will bring Australia, Vietnam and the Asia Pacific region closer than ever before. Also, our successful launch of the SkyBoss Business and Deluxe ticket classes has received great support from passengers, and we look forward to offering even more flying opportunities around the world for travelers.”

Vietjet also announced it has relaunched its direct service connecting Ho Chi Minh City to Hong Kong after a long hiatus. The twice weekly service on every Monday and Friday via three-hour flights will make the travel between Ho Chi Minh City and Hong Kong easier and more affordable.

Vietnam has lifted the arrival regulations relating to COVID-19 and travelers can enjoy a complete pre-pandemic fashion arriving in the country.  Let’s hunt for saving tickets with Vietjet to return with many trips to discover Vietnam, and connect farther to top regional destinations such as Australia, India, Thailand, Singapore, Korea, Indonesia (Bali), and Malaysia.
