For the first time in quite a while we present you with a deal to Vietnam, as Star Alliance carriers Austrian Airlines and SWISS reduced prices to Ho Chi Minh City in the South of the country. Their €492 even include a checked bag up to 23 kg. Sadly, two stops are necessary to reach Vietnam for a price that low.
Worldwide travel restrictions are in place to slow the spread of Covid-19. We strongly recommend gathering detailed information about the travel and quarantine restrictions that apply to your desired origin and destination.
A good start is the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website. It provides current updates on a country’s immigration policies. Even better, the Covid-19 Travel Regulations Map is one of the most useful tools you can find.
Our availability calendar previews all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. You can select flight dates, and it will forward you to Austrian Airlines or Swiss, who sell the cheapest tickets themselves.
All possible trips have two stops – on at a European Star Alliance hub, the other in Bangkok. Austrian or Swiss will fly you from Amsterdam to Zurich or Vienna. You continue aboard their respective Boeing 777 fleet (3-4-3 seating) to Bangkok. Thai Airways’ subsidiary Thai Smiles handles the last part of the journey.
