Local airlines have launched a range of promotional programs on air tickets on both domestic and international routes during August - the end of the peak season.

Budget carrier Jetstar Pacific is offering huge discounts, with prices ranging between VND11,000 ($0.47) and VND228,000 ($9.8) for one-way tickets on flights every Thursday from August to October, mostly from Ho Chi Minh City to other cities and provinces and regional destinations such as Hai Phong, Thanh Hoa, Hue, Da Lat, Phu Quoc, Nha Trang, Bangkok, Guangzhou, Kaohsiung, and elsewhere.

Meanwhile, the country’s newest airline, Bamboo Airways, has launched preferential ticket packages between VND900,000 ($38.6) and VND1.4 million ($60.3) on domestic flights departing from September to April 2020 booked between August 6 and 23, including taxes and fees. Tickets must be booked five days in advance.

National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines is offering discounts from August 19 to 28, with one-way tickets priced from VND299,000 ($12.9) to VND799,000 ($34.4) on domestic routes and from $9 to $500 on international routes departing from August to March 2020. It also offers cheap tickets every Thursday on certain domestic routes at prices between VND222,000 ($9.6) and VND777,000 ($33.4) one-way.

Hai Au Aviation, the pioneer of commercial seaplane flights in Vietnam, is offering a promotion of 30 per cent off sightseeing tours in Hue and Da Nang until September 30, costing only $87 for a 30-minute bird’s eye view over UNESCO World Heritage Sites in and between the two cities.

Low-cost carrier Vietjet Air recently introduced 1 million tickets priced from only VND0, excluding taxes and fees, on several flights booked between 12pm and 2pm on August 6 to 8 for departures from September to June 2020.

August is the end of the peak season for travel, so prices come down significantly to stimulate demand.
