Vietjet announces new Sydney-Hanoi route
Edited by Travel Weekly

    Vietjet is excited to announce the latest addition to its route network, connecting Sydney to Hanoi.

    This follows closely on the heels of the recent announcement of its route between Melbourne and Hanoi earlier this month.

    The new route between Sydney and Hanoi will commence operations from 8 June 2024. These flights will run twice a week, with each leg taking approximately 10 hours. Flights from Sydney to Hanoi will depart every Thursday and Sunday at 8:30 local time, arriving in Hanoi at 16:00 on the same day (local time).

    Meanwhile, departures from Hanoi to Sydney will occur every Wednesday and Saturday at 17:10 local time, arriving in Sydney at 06:10 the following day (local time).

    To celebrate the launch of its new route between Sydney to Hanoi, Vietjet is offering a promotion on its Eco seats with one-way tickets priced from AU$165 all-in and are available for purchase until 25 March 2024, applicable to all routes between Australia and Vietnam.

    Due to the limited number of discounted seats, availability may vary depending on the route and travel dates from now until 31 October 2024. The promotion is available on the Vietjet Air mobile app and its website for all flight routes connecting Australia and Vietnam, including the new routes between Sydney and Melbourne to Hanoi, and the routes connecting Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Sydney, and Melbourne to Ho Chi Minh City.

    Vietjet’s recent introduction of its Sydney-Hanoi and Melbourne-Hanoi routes reflect its 2023 business performance, which saw the airline complete 133,000 flights with 25.3 million passengers onboard (excluding Vietjet Thailand) – of which more than 7.6 million were on international flights.

    In 2023 alone, Vietjet continued to grow its flight network with 33 new international and domestic routes, including the five new routes in Australia (Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney), bringing the total number of routes to 125, including 80 international and 45 domestic routes. Vietjet is currently the largest Vietnamese airline operating in Australia with 48 per cent seat capacity, ahead of Vietnam Airlines (40%) and Jetstar (12%).
