Vietnam Airlines launches daily non-stop service from Heathrow
Vietnam Airlines is to commence daily non-stop services between Heathrow and Vietnam from 23 June 2016, adding a new Thursday flight to Hanoi to its existing six flights per week schedule.
Offering three flights per week to Ho Chi Minh City and four flights to Hanoi, the national carrier’s increased service follows the successful launch of its new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft on all UK routes and new livery, corporate identity and brand image in September 2015.
Vietnam Airlines offers the UK’s only non-stop flights to Vietnam, operating from Heathrow Terminal 4. The flights are scheduled to offer convenient overnight journeys in both directions, and excellent onward connections via the airline’s comprehensive network of over 40 destinations in Asia, including 23 within Vietnam and Indochina as well as China, Japan and Taiwan.
Effective 23 June, the Summer 2016 schedule will be as follows:
Flight number – Depart – Arrive – Frequency
VN54 – Heathrow 1445hrs – Hanoi 0815 (next day) – Tues/Thurs/Fri/Sun
