Vietnam flights go on sale



Vietnam Airlines has started selling non-stop flights from the UK on its website ahead of the launch of its new services in December.


The Vietnamese flag carrier will start flying between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City and London Gatwick on December 8.


It will offer two return flights a week to each city, providing the only non-stop services between the UK and Vietnam. It plans to increase frequency to seven flights a week by 2014.


The carrier said the UK had become one of Vietnam's most important trading partners in the European Union, with nearly 90,000 Britons visiting last year, an increase of 28% over 2009. It hopes Vietnam will become a hub for tourists wishing to travel to Laos, Myanmar and Cambodia.


Tickets are available at www.vietnamairlines.com
