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.

ďItís been fantastic to see so many travellers enthusiastic about Ho Chi Minh as a destination as itís a great gateway to Vietnamís tourism experience. Demand for travel to Vietnam has been particularly strong in the July school holidays,Ē Mr Wallace said. ďVietnam 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. Itís not surprising to us that it is starting to become a popular hot spot on the holiday calendar.Ē
