Vietnam Airlines offers the UK’s only nonstop flights to Vietnam, with six per week from Heathrow Terminal 4 to Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City – rising to daily in Summer 2016. In September 2015 Vietnam’s national flag carrier introduced brand new next-generation Boeing B787-9 Dreamliners on its UK routes as part of a major fleet upgrade, and launched a fresh new livery, corporate identity and brand image. Vietnam Airlines’ flights are carefully scheduled to offer convenient overnight journeys in both directions, and excellent onward connections via its comprehensive network of over 40 destinations in Asia, including 23 within Vietnam and Indochina as well as China, Japan and Taiwan.
