About Vietnam Airlines

The national airline of the country, Vietnam Airlines (VN), was founded in 1956 as Civil Aviation of Vietnam. It operates from platforms at the Noi Bai International Airport in Hanoi (HAN) and the Tan Son Nhat International Airport in Ho Chi Minh City (SGN). The Da Nang International Airport (DAD) acts as a secondary platform. Member of the SkyTeam alliance, Vietnam Airlines flies to about 20 domestic destinations and to about 30 international destinations in Asia, Oceania and Europe. The company also has codeshare agreements with more than 20 airlines. The fleet of 92 aircraft of Vietnam Airlines is configured with a cabin (Economy Class), two cabins (Business Class and Economy Class) or three cabins (Business Class, Deluxe Tourist Class and Economy Class)

Vietnam is a country with very good connections of internal flights between the cities that are visited in a trip and that require going by plane. There are multiple frequencies of domestic flights between Hanoi, Danang, Hue and Ho Chi Minh, which are the main places you will go to. And if you want to combine Cambodia with Vietnam from both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh there are several flights a day as well. Below we will detail which are the airlines that you can use and which routes they do.
The main companies that operate internal flights in Vietnam are Vietnam Airlines, Viet Jetair, Jetstar and Cambodian Angkor Air to go to Siem Reap.

It is the country’s flag company, has a modern fleet and is reliable in every way. Of course, it is usually the most expensive option of the three companies that do domestic flights in Vietnam, unless you have timely offers. It is always an option to fly between Hanoi and Danang, Hue, Ho Chi Minh and Phu Quoc and between Hochi Minh and Hue, Danang, Hanoi and Phu Quoc. It will also be a very good option to go from Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh to Siem Reap (Cambodia) or vice versa. In addition, having many frequencies from all the cities of Vietnam, it is the one that will best serve you to go to Siem Reap from some other point of the country, via Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh.

Viet Jetair (VJ)


It is a low cost company that operates many internal flights between the main cities and tourist places in Vietnam. It is a Vietnamese replica to the low cost Air Asia, since its operating parameters and its concept of airline is very similar. It has a fleet of more than 45 aircraft, mainly Airbus 320 and 321 of last generation with an average of age that does not reach 3 years. So from the security point of view it is reliable. Their prices, like good low cost, are very economical if you book in advance and go up as the date of the flight approaches. It is useful to fly from Hanoi to Danang, Hue, Ho Chi Minh, Phu Quoc, and Siem Reap or from Ho Chi Minh to Hue, Danang, Hanoi and Phu Quoc. It also has a curious flight, in case you want to go to the Mekhong delta without going through Ho Chi Minh, which makes Danang-Can Tho.

Jetstar Pacific (BL)

It is the low cost airline of Vietnamese majority capital, but it is a subsidiary of Jetstar, the most important Australian low cost airline, whose owner is Qantas Airways, which is in turn the flag airline of Australia. However, at the moment Vietnam Airlines owns 70% of the capital of Jetstar Pacific, so it is clearly your low cost airline, to be able to compete with Viet. It has a modern fleet of about 18 Airbus 320 aircraft and its base is at Ho Chi Minh airport. Its prices are similar to those of Viet Jetair, although it has fewer frequencies since its fleet is smaller. Therefore, the average price of an internal flight with Jetstar will also be between 35 and 45 Euros, once the supplements have been added and whenever it is booked in advance.

Cambodia Angkor Air (K6)

It is an airline subsidiary of Vietnam Airlines, which offers all the guarantees of reliability. Its fleet of aircraft is modern and consists of Airbus 321 and ATR 72. It is useful as one of the options to fly from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh to Siem Reap and especially to fly from Da Nang to Siem Reap. This is very convenient, since it allows you to finish the trip to Vietnam in Hoi An (Da Nang airport is very close) and not have to fly to Siem Reap (Ruins of Angkor) via Ho Chi Minh or Hanoi. The final price in your cheapest fare to fly between Da Nang and Siem Reap is around 160 Euros and to fly between Ho Chi Minh and Siem Reap is around 120-130 Euros to change. To fly from Hanoi to Siem Reap is usually more expensive than Viet Jetair or Vietnam Airlines. As for its baggage policy, it admits 20 kg billed and 7 kg in the cabin. Each extra kilo of overweight to fly from Vietnam or vice versa is charged when you check in. These are, therefore, the four different options with which you count to be able to make your domestic flights in Vietnam or to fly to Cambodia from Vietnam.
