Consult your ticket agent for the best routings to Vietnam.

Domestic Airlines

The State-run Vietnam airlines is the most established one. For domestic flights, Vietnam airlines use a mixture of Boeing (338 seats) and Airbus (320 seats). With some short flights to small airports such as Saigon – Dalat route, ATR (66 seats) and Fokker (79 seats) are operated.

Seat Assignment on the Airplane

The internal flights throughout Southeast Asia are relatively short, therefore seat assignment is not possible. The best way to secure a seat of your choice is to arrive at the airport early. You are requested to be present at the airport 1 hour before departure for domestic flights and 2 hours before departure for international flights.

Airport security

Please be aware that our courtesy check in service is now limited due to the current world security climate. You must have an airline ticket to enter the check-in terminal. Some airports will stipulate that you must check in your own bags. We thank you for your understanding on this matter.

Luggage allowance

Each airline has its own luggage allowance policy. Excess baggage is charged at a specific rate depending on the individual route. You are advised to check your airline prior to travel since the below price is subject to change.

All airlines now stipulate that liquids, gels and/or aerosols in HAND LUGGAGE must be in completely closed containers of 3 oz/100ml or less (even if the container is partially filled).

Arrival tips

 

After collecting your luggage and completing the immigration and customs procedures, you will walk through the exit gate. You may feel overwhelmed by the large crowds and many people from different hotels and companies holding up name signs. Take your time to look for a welcome sign with the Flight Travel logo and your name

 

·         If you are approached by anyone offering transport services and WITHOUT carrying a burgundy Flight Travel welcome signboard, DO NOT follow him or her.

·         Avoid revealing your full names to strangers on the airplane as they might make a fake welcome signboard with your name.

·         If after some time you are unable to find the burgundy Flight Travel welcome signboard, please call us for immediate assistance at 0903 72 65 64 (Mr. Khuong) or the local emergency number listed in your itinerary. There is an airport phone booth located inside the terminal or you can ask for assistance from the airport staff.

·         At Ho Chi Minh City and Danang airports, there is only one exit gate while in Hanoi there are 2 gates for different airlines. Please refer to the electronic board which will display arrival flight and relevant exit gate in the welcome lounge.

·         Please keep a copy of your completed Immigration and Customs form as you will need to present it at Immigration upon departure from Vietnam
