Aerosvit has launched direct flights between Kiev and Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC). The new route will operate twice a week using a wide-body Boeing 767 aircraft. Flights will depart the Ukrainian capital on Wednesdays and Saturdays, returning from HCMC on Mondays and Fridays.
The airline said in a statement that the new route would “serve primarily tourist, ethnic and business traffic flows to Vietnam”. Vietnam Airlines will codeshare on the new route, allowing Aerosvit passengers to connect via HCMC to several destinations in Vietnam Airlines’ Asian network.
In addition, Aerosvit has signed a codeshare agreement with Turkish Airlines to co-operate on flights between Istanbul and Kiev, Odessa, Donetsk, Dnipropetrovsk and Simferopol.
