Hanoi (VNA) – The national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines has announced that it will launch direct air routes linking Ho Chi Minh City with Indonesia’s Bali and Thailand’s Phuket on October 27.

Accordingly, the carrier will run seven Ho Chi Minh City – Bali flights per week. However, there will be only five flights per week from October 27 to late March 2020 due to limited services in Denpasar airport, Bali.

Flights will depart from Ho Chi Minh City at 11:10am and Bali at 4:50pm every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.

It will be the second route to Indonesia following the Ho Chi Minh City – Jakarta route that the carrier launched in December 2012 with seven flights per week.

Meanwhile, there will be three flights on the Ho Chi Minh City - Phuket route per week.

Flights depart from Ho Chi Minh City at 3:50pm and Phuket at 6:40pm every Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.

The number of flights on the route is expected to increase to seven per week as from late March 2020, considering the big potential of this service.

Vietnam Airlines will also resume its service connecting the central coastal city of Da Nang and Bangkok on October 27, which will depart from Da Nang at 3:20pm and Bangkok at 6pm./.
