UAE-based Etihad Airways began daily non-stop flights between its hub at UAE capital Abu Dhabi to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam on October 1, 2013.
The flights between Abu Dhabi and Ho Chi Minh City will give travelers from the United States seamless connections on Etihad to exotic Vietnam, an emerging vacation destination, with a connection in Abu Dhabi. Travelers on the US East Coast can avoid the flight to the West Coast by instead flying east to the United Arab Emirates while enjoying the luxurious services of an award winning airline.
The Abu Dhabi to Ho Chi Minh City flights will be operated with an Airbus A330-200 aircraft with 22 seats in Pearl Business Class and 240 in Coral Economy Class. The flights will offer nearly 3,700 new seats a week on the route.
Etihad also has a code-sharing agreement with Vietnamese flag carrier Vietnam Airlines.
