Hong Kong Airlines to Resume its Ho Chi Minh Route

Hong Kong Airlines will resume direct flights from Hong Kong to Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) starting July 20, 2017, further strengthening its network in Asia while offering Vietnam-bound travellers convenient connection between the two major cities.

The five times weekly route will be operated with an Airbus A320. Flight HX538 will depart Hong Kong every Monday, Tuesday Thursday, Friday and Saturday, at 23:05 to land in Ho Chi Minh City at 00:50 the next day. Return flight HX539 will take off every Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 04:00 to arrive in Hong Kong at 08:30. All times local.

“Ho Chi Minh City has always been one of the most bustling cities in Asia with great cultural charm, and with our long-established and successful development in Hanoi, we see great potential in Vietnam,” says Li Dianchun, chief commercial officer of Hong Kong Airlines. “The resumption of the Ho Chi Minh City route will not only consolidate our strategic position in Asia, but will also help us tap into the global market, connect passengers to our other long haul routes like Gold Coast, Auckland, and Vancouver which will inaugurate this June.”
