Vietnam Airlines will operate two charter flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Adelaide later this year, marking the first time that there has been a direct flight between Adelaide and Vietnam.
Two return services will depart Adelaide on November 21 and December 5, utilising Vietnam Airlines’ new Airbus A330-200s. The flights are being operated on behalf of Bunnik Tours.
Adelaide Airport managing director Phil Baker said that the two flights were a great opportunity for the city. “We see the attraction of charter flights such as this as an important step in our efforts to attract more international airlines and flights to Adelaide, and we have been working closely with the state government, Bunnik Tours and our aviation consultancy, Aspirion, to achieve this,” he said.
