We're expanding our Pacific Rim presence introducing New Zealand’s first direct service to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.
We will fly three times a week between Auckland and Ho Chi Minh City's Tan Son Nhat International Airport (SGN) on a seasonal basis, operating from June to October in 2016 with the potential to expand the season in subsequent years.
With a flight time of around 11 hours, the direct service will be operated by our Boeing 767-300 aircraft.
Visitors to Vietnam can soak up the French influence, sample the regional food offerings, discover more than 3,000 kilometres of coastline and explore the country's history. From the beauty of Halong Bay and the mountains in the north, to the ancient port city of Hoi An, beach resorts on the southeast coast and the markets on the Mekong River - it's a holiday destination with wide appeal.
With the addition of services to Ho Chi Minh City, we will now fly to 30 international destinations.
Tickets are on sale now and are subject to government and regulatory approvals.
