Airlines serving Vietnam
If you are looking for a direct flight to Vietnam, note that only two companies offer this option which are Vietnam Airlines and Air France. According to an agreement between the two airlines, the flights are sold and provided by one or the other.
If you don’t mind a stopover, you’ll find plenty of other airlines serving Vietnam from different countries, including Emirates and Turkish Airlines, for example. However, the duration of your trip will often be longer, and the price is not necessarily more attractive.

- Tan Son Nhat (SGN) à Ho Chi Minh.
- Noi Bai (HAN) à Hanoi.
- Cam Ranh (CXR) à Nha Trang.
