Air New Zealand Confirms Auckland - Ho Chi Minh Flights for 2018

Air New Zealand has confirmed that it will continue to operate a seasonal non-stop service to Ho Chi Minh (Saigon), Vietnam.

For its 2018 season, the airline will operate two direct services a week between Auckland and Ho Chi Minh on Tuesdays and Saturdays, using Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.

This will be the third consecutive year of Vietnam operations for the airline.

Air New Zealand Chief Revenue Officer, Cam Wallace, says there has been a huge appetite for travel to Vietnam by Kiwis since the airline introduced a direct seasonal service to Ho Chi Minh from Auckland in 2016.

“It’s been fantastic to see so many travellers enthusiastic about Ho Chi Minh as a destination as it’s a great gateway to Vietnam’s tourism experience. Demand for travel to Vietnam has been particularly strong in the July school holidays,” Mr Wallace said. “Vietnam is one of the most affordable destinations for Kiwis and offers a memorable experience whether you are flying solo, as a couple, a family or a group of friends. It’s not surprising to us that it is starting to become a popular hot spot on the holiday calendar.”

Air New Zealand’s 2018 Vietnam season will operate between 23 June and 23 October.
