Vietnam Airlines is continuing to increase flight frequency and open new direct routes to China, thereby promoting trade and tourism and meeting the travel demands of many passengers after three years of Covid-19.

From March 2023, Vietnam Airlines will launch direct routes between Hanoi and Beijing with 03 flights/week and Hanoi/Guangzhou with 04 flights/week. The airline will also increase the number of weekly flights between Hanoi/Ho Chi Minh City and Shanghai to 04 flights, and between Ho Chi Minh City and Guangzhou to 04 flights.

In order to completely restore direct routes to China – a major international market for Vietnam Airlines – the airline plans to launch new flight routes between Danang and Shanghai, Danang and Guangzhou, Danang and Chengdu, and Hanoi and Chengdu beginning in the summer of 2023. At the same time, the airline will resume operating charter flights between Danang, Nha Trang, and other Chinese regions in order to meet the demands of the tourism market.

Passengers from China can easily catch connecting flights to popular tourist destinations throughout Vietnam and Southeast Asia, such as Phu Quoc, Quy Nhon, Nha Trang, Singapore, Siem Reap, and Bangkok, thanks to convenient flight schedules and flight routes operated by Vietnam Airlines. These products promise to provide passengers with more appealing and interesting options.

To celebrate the return of flights to China, until December 31, 2023, all passengers who book their tickets online, either through the website or the official Vietnam Airlines app, at least 60 days before the date of departure or in groups of four or more on the same booking to the same destination will receive a 5% discount.

Passengers are encouraged to actively consult the official guidelines issued by the Chinese Embassy prior to their entry into China in order to meet all official requirements for documents and procedures. Passengers can also consult our website and the Vietnam Airlines app, our official fanpage at, or contact our official travel agencies or the Customer Service Hotline at 1900 1100 for more information and support.
