HCMC – Three carriers of Vietnam Airlines Group have announced that millions of tickets would be offered for Lunar New Year (Tet) flights from January 1 to February 5 next year.
Passengers can now buy Tet tickets on the official websites and mobile applications and at ticketing offices of Vietnam Airlines, Pacific Airlines and VASCO.
As for domestic flights, the airlines will add seats on flights connecting Hanoi, Danang and HCMC with destinations across the country, such as Haiphong, Vinh, Thanh Hoa, Hue, Quy Nhon, Quang Nam, Pleiku, Dalat, Nha Trang and Phu Quoc.
After relaxing entry procedures, the number of Vietnam Airlines’ international flights has almost doubled, with many flights connecting Vietnam with regional countries such as Singapore, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, South Korea and Australia.
However, Tet tickets for the HCMC-Hanoi and the HCMC-Danang route during the peak days of December 26-30 are still not available for sale, except single business class tickets valued at nearly VND10 million.
Besides Vietnam Airlines, mid-July saw many Tet tickets for sale on the websites of Vietjet Air and Bamboo Airways.
Vietjet is selling HCMC-Hanoi tickets on January 18, 2023, for over VND2.9 million, a drop against over VND3 million for Eco-class tickets, and over VND4.5 million for Skyboss class tickets in mid-July.
Bamboo Airways has also reduced its Tet ticket prices by VND100,000-200,000 per ticket.
