More nonstop flights from India to Vietnam

SINGAPORE, 17 April 2024: Air India has opened sales ahead of its planned launch of direct flights between Delhi, India, and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, due to commence on 1 June 2024.

India’s national airline will fly the route five times weekly: Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The airline will use an A320 neo aircraft with 162 seats — 12 in business and 150 in economy.

Earlier, the airline filed a schedule for the DEL-SGN-DEL route, with flights due to launch on 1 May. Independent timetable information noted that it would fly a daily service. That has now been revised to five weekly flights starting 1 June.

Air India’s PR Department ignored emails seeking clarity on the launch details. However, the airline posted information on its social media channels confirming flight details. A check of independent booking sites indicates the service is bookable for flights commencing 1 June, and a roundtrip fare starts at USD281. Air India will compete head-on with Vietnamese carriers — Vietnam Airlines (three weekly flights flying A321s and A350-900s) and Vietjet (four weekly flights using an A330).
