The China-based airlines Star Alliance member Shenzhen Airlines is currently offering a nice deal on flights from London to Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. Prices for round-trips from the UK start at only €362 (~£327).
Availability is good until May 2020 and this fare is for a full-service flight, including checked luggage.
All trips will include one layover in Shenzhen, the carrier’s hub. As an EU citizen, you won’t need a visa since you can benefit from the visa exemption when transitting in Shenzhen. Once you changed planes in China, it’s only a short 2 hours flight to Hanoi.
Search & Book
According to the fare rules, tickets will be sold until February 29th. But cheap fares often don’t last that long. So it might be better to book sooner than later. The offer is valid for travel commencing between:
- December 25th and March 19th
- April 14th and May 31st
The minimum stay requirements are 6 days. If your schedule allows for it, you can spend up to 3 months in Vietnam before returning to Europe.
Use Google Flights (instructions) to find all available cheap seats. Once you’ve settled for a date, let our Travel Dealz flight search compare prices for the connection. If you wish, you can also book directly on the carrier’s website. This will result in slightly higher prices, though.
Tickets for this trip will be issued in booking class P (long-haul) or E (short-haul). This is surprisingly good for such a cheap fare since the earning rate will be at least 50% on most Star Alliance frequent flyer programs. Here’s what you will be credited with:
