National flag carrier and SkyTeam member Vietnam Airlines will begin its daily non-stop service between Heathrow and Hanoi on Thursday (23 June), adding to its existing six flights a week.
The company currently has three flights a week to Ho Chi Minh City and four to Hanoi, and says the increased service follows the successful launch of its new B787-9 Dreamliner on all UK routes.
It is the first south-east Asia carrier to serve Europe with the aircraft, which entered service last summer. The airline is expected to operate a total of at least 15 when current orders and leases are fulfilled.
With a fleet comprising mainly B777s, Airbus A330s and Airbus A321s, the company is expanding with next-generation aircraft such as the Dreamliner and A350-900 XWBs.
The airline also launched a new livery, corporate identity and brand image last September.
Vietnam Airlines’ flights to Vietnam are scheduled to offer overnight journeys in both directions, and onward connections via a network of more than 40 destinations in Asia, including 23 within Vietnam and Indochina as well as China, Japan and Taiwan.
