Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC), the two biggest cities in Vietnam, are must-visit destinations when travelers come to this beautiful country. The main reason is that from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, tourists could visit all other sites in the country conveniently by bus, taxi or motorbike. Therefore, the most important thing is to purchase flight tickets from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City (and vice versa) with reasonable price and reliable firm. In this blog, three big airline firms providing Hanoi-HCMC will be uncovered.
1. Vietnam Airlines
Everyday Vietnam Airlines provides up to 20 flights for the route Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh city, making up 50% the number of flights for this airline. Similar to other airline firms, Vietnam Airline’s flight in 1.161 km one-round trip takes about 2 hours.
Until now, Vietnam Airlines has been the biggest national airline in the country with the widest range of domestic airline routes. There are several flights to minor provinces in Vietnam that is only run by this airline firm.
Running in a traditional model, Vietnam Airlines allows each passenger free 20 kg luggage on the aircraft and also offers travelers with free meal and beverage during their trip. Another advantage of this firm is their powerful fleet with large and modern facility aircrafts namely Boeing 777, Airbus 330, Airbus 320/321, to name a few.
However, with above advantages over other firms, Vietnam Airline’s flight tickets are usually more expensive than those of the later. Despite some discount events are launched each year, Vietnam Airlines’ ticket price is assessed to be the highest.
2. Jetstar Pacific
Jetstar is the second biggest airline firm in Vietnam providing flights on this route. However, different from Vietnam Airlines, Jestar is well known for its cheap-price tickets. The price of Jetstar tickets are not only usually cheaper than that of Vietnam Airlines (for the same route), but this company also offers weekly discount days (Friday as usual) and New Year discount events which attract thousands of customers.
Though the old conditions of the aircrafts and facilities of Jetstar airlines are sometimes complained about by many passengers, these people still remain satisfied because the price itself in general fulfills their expectations.
3. Vietjet Air
Operated in the same cheap-price model with Jestar Pacific, Vietjet Air every day provides as many flight from Hanoi to HCMC as Jestar does (approximately 8 flights).
Vietjet Air is known as an airline firm for every Vietnamese people thanks to its cheap price and regular super discount offers which sell tickets as cheap as a bus ride for the same routes.
When flying with Vietjet Air, one would feel secured due to the hospitality and nice attitude of the well-trained airhostesses. However, we advise that you should always prepare for any delays or cancellations of any of your trips because they are known for being the “Delay Airlines”.
- Just one more note: If you choose to travel by cheap airline firm and want to bring along further luggage, it is compulsory that you purchase the luggage allowance.
