Jetstar's inaugural flight to Vietnam takes off from Melbourne!
- Jetstar becomes the only low cost carrier to fly direct to Vietnam, one of the fastest growing holiday destinations in South East Asia.
- Jetstar will fly direct to Ho Chi Minh City three times a week from Melbourne and four times a week from Sydney.
- One way flights available from $249* from Melbourne and $199* from Sydney.
“There is enormous potential for Vietnam to become one of the most popular destinations for Australian travellers thanks to its wonderful year-round climate and great beaches, food and culture.
Mr Salter added the new flights will also boost inbound tourism, building on the 21 per cent increase in Vietnamese visitors to Australia in the last 12 months.
“Melbourne and Sydney both have large Vietnamese communities, and we expect to see visitors to the two cities increase with the introduction of these low fares,” he said.
The new flights will operate three times per week from Melbourne and, from tomorrow, four times a week from Sydney.
