Specifically, Vietnam Airlines will use Airbus A350-900 for the route between Ho Chi Minh City to Singapore, and Boeing 787-9 for the Ho Chi Minh City-Bangkok route, together with the Airbus A321 currently in use.
With the optimal two-aisle design, Airbus A350-900 and Boeing 787-9 aircraft can accommodate up to 300 passengers, with more spacious seating space. Business class seats can lean back 180 degrees to help customers fully relax. Outstanding facilities, such as extra-large luggage compartments, larger windows, and in-built USB charging ports in the seats, as well as modern personal entertainment system featuring movies and games, will create maximum convenience for passengers.

Especially, Vietnam Airlines will offer attractive round-trip rates, with Ho Chi Minh City-Singapore tickets going from VND816,000 ($34.48), and Ho Chi Minh City-Bangkok tickets from VND679,000 ($29.52) (not including taxes and related fees). The offer is valid for flights between April 1 to May 31 2019 and is applicable to flights VN657 (Airbus A350-900 from Ho Chi Minh City to Singapore) and VN607 (Boeing 787-9 from Ho Chi Minh City to Bangkok).
Currently, Vietnam Airlines operates more than 40 flights a week along the two routes, with Airbus A350-900 and Boeing 787-9 aircraft flying each day. Passengers can carry a maximum of 20 kilogrammes of baggage together with one hand baggage and are served meals on all flights.
The addition of the Airbus A350-900 and Boeing 787-9 aircraft to these lines is part of Vietnam Airlines' summer plan. Under this plan, between March 31 and October 27, 2019, Vietnam Airlines will increase flight frequency, improve departure schedule, and diversify the types of aircraft flying on its domestic and international routes to meet the travel needs and bring memorable flight experiences to passengers.
