Air New Zealand: There is a huge appetite for travel to Vietnam
(VNF) -Due to the robust demand of passengers in New Zealand, Air New Zealand will keep operating two direct services a week between Auckland and Ho Chi Minh City on Tuesdays and Saturdays, using its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner. This will be the third consecutive year of the airline's Vietnam operations.
Ho Chi Minh City is the richest of cultural mixing pots, and this is seen best in its brilliant architecture, said Air New Zealand (source: airnewzealand.co.nz)
According to Chief Revenue Officer of Air New Zealand Cam Wallace, there has been a huge appetite for travel to Vietnam by Kiwis since the airline introduced a direct seasonal service to Ho Chi Minh City from Auckland in 2016.
"It's been fantastic to see so many travellers enthusiastic about Ho Chi Minh as a destination as it's a great gateway to Vietnam's tourism experience. Demand for travel to Vietnam has been particularly strong in the July school holidays," Mr Wallace says.
"Vietnam is one of the most affordable destinations for Kiwis and offers a memorable experience whether you are flying solo, as a couple, a family or a group of friends. It's not surprising to us that it is starting to become a popular hot spot on the holiday calendar," he added.
Air New Zealand's 2018 Vietnam season will operate between 23 June and 23 October./.
