Vietnam Airlines is scheduled to launch direct flights from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to Manila from June 17, making it the first domestic airline to open direct flights to the capital Philippines.

The Hanoi-Manila route will have three flights per week – on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

There will be four flights a week linking HCM City with Manila on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. All will use wide-body aircraft.

The new routes mark a milestone in its international flight network development strategy as they connect Manila, Hanoi and HCMC – three leading economic hubs of Southeast Asia.

The opening of direct air routes to Manila will also help promote economic, cultural and tourism exchanges between Vietnam and the Philippines as well as in the Southeast Asia region, the carrier added.

Tickets for the routes are now available on Vietnam Airlines' website, mobile app, and official ticket offices and agents nationwide.
