Air New Zealand’s launches direct Auckland-Ho Chi Minh flight


Air New Zealand has expanded its Pacific Rim presence with the launch of its first direct service from Auckland to Ho Chi Minh City. The thrice-weekly 11-hour flights between Auckland and Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat International Airport are on a seasonal basis until October in 2016 and operated with a Boeing B767-300 aircraft. The airline may expand the season in subsequent years.
