Vietnam Airlines has announced it will be extending its services from London Gatwick Airport. During the summer season, the airline will add a fifth weekly service from Gatwick, increasing its Ho Chi Minh City route from two to three flights a week. The airline will also continue to serve Hanoi twice a week.
Matt Wood, Head of Airline Relations, Gatwick Airport, said: “We are delighted that Vietnam Airlines has decided to expand its services from London Gatwick during the summer months, ensuring that both business and leisure passengers now have even more choice of when to fly to this fantastic destination.
“Air links to high-growth markets such as Vietnam are essential in ensuring that the UK can compete and make the most of the significant trade opportunities available with key emerging markets.
“Gatwick continues to demonstrate that it can open up these links but also, by working closely with our airlines, make them a success.”
