Tips for Vietnam Domestic Flights & Int’l Flights
Domestic flights
Domestic flight coverage is fairly good in Vietnam with frequent flights to lots of cities at reasonable price, and airfare can be easily altered.
Flight booking tips: It is recommended to book Vietnam Airlines flights with local travel agents because it is significantly more expensive to book domestic flights outside of Vietnam.
Vietnam Airlines is the dominant and exclusive air carrier on domestic Vietnam air routes with regular flights to over 15 destinations. Vietnam Airlines flies a modern fleet of Boeing 777 and 767 aircraft, Airbus 321 and 320 aircraft, ATR 72 aircraft, and Fokker 70 aircraft. On-time arrival, on-time departure and the safety record of Vietnam Airlines are excellent compared to any international standards. Though cabin service does not quite yet match international standards, reliability, performance and constantly improving service are the hallmarks of Vietnam Airlines.
Jetstar Pacific Airlines, recently created as a low-cost carrier that also accepts online booking, serves domestic flights to 3 destinations and Vasco Airlines serves 4, and the two airlines will open more routes in the time to come. The Pacific Airlines normal fare is less expensive than those of Vietnam Airlines.
