According to a survey conducted by Zing, there is an abundance of cheap air tickets available on the Ho Chi Minh City - Hanoi route departing on February 10 and returning on February 16.

In line with this, budget-airline VietJet Air has offered its cheapest tickets at approximately VND5.7 million for return tickets, while national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines is offering VND5.9 million on a similar route.

Elsewhere, Bamboo Airways has launched the highest prices on airfares, with a round-trip fare reaching VND6.3 million during the peak of Tet.

With flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Da Nang, departing on February 10 before returning on February 16, local airlines have put tickets on offer at over VND3.6 million.

Meanwhile, tickets for a round-trip flight from Ho Chi Minh City to Vinh during Tet by Vietjet Air, Vietnam Airlines, and Bamboo Airways will cost VND5.6 million, VND5.8 million, and VND6.3 million, respectively.

As the industry’s newest carrier, Vietravel Airlines has not deployed a regular ticketing channel for commercial flights. It plans to launch a ticketing channel in January to coincide with the peak of the Lunar New Year festival.

Vietnamese people will have seven days off during this year’s Tet holiday, starting on February 10, according to a proposal drafted by the Ministry of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs and later approved by the Prime Minister.
