Swiss and Edelweiss are currently offering great deals on flights from various European airports to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. Prices start at only €334 for a round-trip from Copenhagen. Availability isn’t great, but you will find connections between November and February 2020. The fare includes one piece of checked luggage.
You can choose from many airports of departure. Here’s a list of examples but there might be even more:

Please be aware that Edelweiss is not a Star Alliance member. Many of the Star Alliance benefits are usually still granted, even if unofficially. But this could always change.
Most of the trips that are possible will have a layover in Zurich. Swiss will only operate the short-haul connections. Edelweiss will then take over and fly you from Europe to Vietnam.
Search & Book
According to the fare rules, this deal will be around until November 30th and is valid for trips commencing between November 18th and March 6th, 2020. In regards to the end date, we believe that cheap seats will sell out earlier than the end of November. So don’t waste too much time.
Minimum stay requirements are 6 days, or you have to stay at least one night from Saturday to Sunday. And you could spend up to 3 months in Vietnam before returning to Europe.
You will be able to find dates that suit you best by using Google Flights (instructions). The tool will not only display all prices and routes correctly but also forward you to Swiss’ website for booking. Of course, you can also use our Travel Dealz flight search to compare prices that OTAs offer.
Information & Tips for Vietnam
Vietnam is a country in South Eastern Asia. Hanoi in the north of the country is the capital, while southern Ho-Chi-Minh-City (HCMC) is the most populous city. Vietnam is famous for its vast natural jungles, beautiful beaches and the famous Ha-Long-Bay, just outside of Hanoi. The country’s name has become a trope in pop-culture, mainly because of many American movies and TV series dealing with the USA’s military intervention in the country in the late 1960s.
Best Time to Travel
Best seasons for tourists visiting Vietnam are spring (February through April) and fall (August through October). At this time, precipitation is at a yearly low and temperatures are enjoyable. Because of the large north-south distance covered by the country, best travel times can be regionally different.
Visa & Immigration
Most EU-Citizens can get a visa-free entry for stays up to fifteen days. All they need is a passport valid for more than six months. After leaving Vietnam, you have to wait 30 days to apply for another visa-free entry. If you’re planning to stay longer than fifteen days, you need to apply for a regular visa.
Vietnam’s official curreny is the Vietnamese Dong. 1€ buys roughy 26,000 Dong. International credit cards are accepted in most major cities throughout the country. Getting cash via ATMs is no problem in major cities, as well. Please inform yourself about possible comission fees before travelling to Vietnam.
