Vietravel Airlines adds Bangkok flight


HO CHI MINH CITY, 13 February 2023: Vietravel Airlines celebrated its inaugural flight to Bangkok on 9 February, flying a group of VIPs on the new service and raffling off a domestic ticket at a launch ceremony attended by travel agents.

The airline starts its Bangkok service, offering daily flights from Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat international airport departing at 1215 and arriving at Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi airport at 1345 using an A321.

Owned by Vietnam’s largest tour operator, Vietravel, the airline launched international routes on 16 December 2022 with a daily service from Hanoi to Bangkok. It successfully introduced domestic flights in early 2022 as the fifth commercial airline in Vietnam.

The airline and its travel agency channel Vietravel sell a “special one-way fare on the SGN -BKK route at VND18,000 (excluding taxes/fees) to promote the new route. However, if you check out the airline’s website for a round trip ticket on 16 February out of HCMC and return from Bangkok on 23 February, the lowest fare quote is VND430,000 on the outbound leg and VND530,000 on the return leg. When taxes and fees are added, the roundtrip fare will set you back VND3,213,500, which sounds like a fortune, but it’s around USD136.31 roundtrip.
