Hanoi!! Here I come!!
More good news for travelers! Now there’s an affordable way to fly into Vietnam, a country gaining a reputation as a tourist hotspot. Started October 4 last year i.e. 2006, Air Asia runs flights to Hanoi twice daily. The flight, which takes some 3 hours and 25 minutes, is priced differently according to demand, with the most expensive ticket priced at USD105 (about RM390) for a one-way flight. However, Air Asia’s CEO Tony Fernandes said at a press conference in Hanoi that he hopes to lower the fare to as low as USD9.99 when the route proves to be more successful and the group gets a license for opening a second route to Vietnam.
