Flights to Vietnam

Direct flights to Vietnam

Direct flights to Vietnam arrive at three main international airports of Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi and Da Nang. Visitors often take the cheaper option of an indirect flight via regional cities such as Bangkok, Singapore, Hong Kong, Kula Lumpur, Brunei… and transit at no extra cost. It is best if you can find an airline that flies in and out of both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City will allow you to fly into one city and out of the other save up some time.
