Vietnam Airlines adds more UK flights

Vietnam’s national carrier Vietnam Airlines has announced plans to increase its flights to the UK this summer. The new schedule will see an additional fifth weekly flight depart from Gatwick Airport in June.

At current, the airline runs four weekly flights from the London airport via Frankfurt and if the trial in June is successful the airline will permanently increase its weekly schedule to five flights to Vietnam. The decision comes as co-founder of Travel Indochina Paul Hole announced plans to boost the airline’s service to a daily operation if the demand is there. Mr Hole believes the airline need to take faster action in increasing its services from the UK so more Brits can visit the country.

“Our intention in the mid to long term is to work up towards daily frequencies, but this is still some way off at present,” said David Cook, UK and Ireland sales manager for Vietnam Airlines. “We accept that the next three years is all about education... Our contact has to be intimate and upfront at the moment until travel agents know who we are. We have our BDMs on the road and want to host joint events with travel agents for their customers to showcase our product.”

Travel Indochina has also added 20 informative videos to its website, designed to educate UK travel agents and customers on its small group journey-style holiday and destinations. The move comes as the company prepares to celebrate its 21st milestone anniversary in 2014, by teaming up with the airline to promote the country’s beach destinations and multi-destination tours.
