MIAMI – Vietnam Airlines (VN) will resume international flights from its Ho Chi Minh (SGN) and Hanoi (HAN) bases to destinations in Asia, Europe, and Australia from July 15.

Vietnam’s flag carrier intentions with the resumption of these flights are to cater to passengers such as students and workers who wish to pursue their objectives abroad and also serve foreign ex-pats coming into Vietnam for work.
