Flights from Ho Chi Minh City will increase to twice weekly (Monday and Wednesday) on 4 December. 

It marks the first direct route between Munich and cities in Vietnam, boosting both leisure and business travel between the two countries.

Bookings for direct flights during the northern hemisphere winter timetable, which starts in October and ends 31 March 2025, have already opened on the airline’s website and through independent online travel agency channels. Skyscanner quotes a Hanoi-Munich roundtrip fare starting at USD1,203 for flights in December. On the Ho Chi Minh City-Munich route, the fare is slightly cheaper at USD1195 during December.

The airline will use a Boeing B787-9 for new flights to Munich, configured with business class, premium economy, and economy class cabins on the two routes.

Munich becomes the fourth European destination in the Vietnam Airlines route network, alongside Frankfurt, London Heathrow, and Paris Charles de Gaulle.

“The new routes will expand our range of Asian connections and reinforce Munich Airport’s position as one of the leading aviation hubs in Europe. We are confident that these new direct flights will be very well received by our passengers and help to enhance economic relations and cultural exchange between Bavaria and Vietnam,” said Munich Airport CEO Jost Lammers.

Vietnam has become one of the most popular vacation destinations in Southeast Asia, and including the two routes also highlights the importance of German-Vietnamese economic relations and the relevance of Vietnam as one of the most important travel destinations in Southeast Asia for the German and Bavarian markets. Numerous research and educational partnerships exist between Bavarian and Vietnamese universities, and Bavarian companies have made significant investments in Vietnam.
