Qantas’ Jetstar airs Sydney-HCMC route

Jetstar, the budget carrier run by Qantas Airways Ltd., Thursday inaugurated its first direct flight connecting Sydney to Vietnam's southern commercial hub of Ho Chi Minh City.

The airline will operate three flights a week and use A330-200 aircraft serving two categories, Economy and Star Class.

It is US$268 for one-way ticket bought at agents.

The prices include the seat only, for other services such as food and drink, customers have to pay. The minimum price of food and drink is $10.

Customers can book tickets for flights to Sydney and from Sydney to cities of Australia and New Zealand at website www.jetstar.com or contact R.102 at Saigon Trade Center (37 Ton Duc Thang Street, District 1, HCMC).

According to a Qantas representative, Vietnam has become a hot destination for many Australian travelers.

Additionally, the carrier expected great potential out of the market, especially after the country was formally invited to join the World Trade Organization.

Qantas started Sydney-HCMC service since 1994, but stopped the service in 1998 due to low demand.

The airline has now entered into a code-share agreement with Vietnam Airlines. ThanhNiennews
