To meet rising air travel demand, Vietnam Airlines will launch new services from Ho Chi Minh City to Shenzhen on 27 November and from Hanoi to Shenzhen on 28 November, with a frequency of three and four weekly flights respectively.
These are Vietnam Airlines’ 15th and 16th routes connecting the two countries to further expand the carrier’s vast network in China.
Operated on the Airbus A321, flights will depart from Ho Chi Minh City to Shenzhen on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 22:45, while flights will depart from Hanoi to Shenzhen on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 23:55. All flights from Shenzhen to both Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi will depart at 3:35, with Ho Chi Minh City flights departing every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday; and Hanoi flights every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.
These new routes will not only connect Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to one of the most vibrant economic and technology hubs in China but also enable travelers to explore attractive domestic destinations in both Vietnam and China.
The extensive flight network of Vietnam Airlines allows passengers who have toured Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to visit other popular destinations, namely Quy Nhon, Da Nang, Nha Trang and Phu Quoc. Meanwhile, tourists to China will have the opportunities to explore Shenzhen, Guangzhou or Hong Kong, from which they can easily take Vietnam Airlines’ flights back home.
