Pack your bags because it’s about to get much easier to fly to the tourism hotspot on everyone’s radar.
Emirates and Jetstar Pacific have just announced a new codeshare, making it easier for Emirates passengers connecting to Vietnam from Australia to enjoy a seamless journey.
Travellers flying from Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney to Ho Chi Minh City can connect via Singapore and Bangkok.
The codeshare partnership will give customers travelling from Australia the simplicity of purchasing connecting flights using one reservation, and a seamless ticketing, check-in, boarding and baggage check experience during the entire journey.
Passengers booking flights from 16 destinations in Vietnam, in addition to Hong Kong, Osaka, Tapei, Singapore, Guangzhou and Bangkok will be able to connect in Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi and fly with Emirates to many destinations worldwide.
“As part of our continuous efforts to delight customers around the world, we’re pleased to further extend our partnership with Jetstar Group to include BL, allowing Emirates’ customers to benefit from enhanced connectivity to numerous destinations in Vietnam and beyond while also enjoying the convenience and rewards of the integrated loyalty programme Skywards, wherein customers may earn and redeem Skywards Miles on the codeshare flights,” said Adnan Kazim, Emirates’ Divisional Senior Vice President of Strategic Planning, Revenue Optimisation & Aeropolitical Affairs.
“BL‘s route network of 16 domestic destinations in Vietnam in addition to 6 international cities within Asia complements our flights from EK’s European network into Vietnam and from Australia to Vietnam via Singapore and Bangkok.
“This further enhances our global network that spans more than 160 destinations worldwide.”
The new codeshare services from Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi connect Emirates passengers to 14 Vietnamese cities beyond Ho Chi Minh City and six cities beyond Hanoi.
The Vietnamese cities that are covered by the new codeshare routes include: Ban Me Thuot, Phuquoc, Dalat, Quinhon, Tamky-Chulai, Hue, Pleiku, Nha Trang, Vinh City, Tuy Hoa, Dong Hoi, Thanh Hoa, Haiphong, and Da Nang in addition to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.
Under the agreement, Emirates’ flight number will be placed on Jetstar Pacific’s services to all codeshare destinations.
