MANILA – AirAsia relaunched its services to Ho Chi Minh City along with the mounting of more domestic flights in the Philippines ahead of the summertime peak travel period.
With the first flight out on 29 March 2020, Ho Chi Minh City will be AirAsia’s 16th international destination from Manila.
AirAsia Philippines CEO Ricky Isla said, “We are pleased to announce our newest services to Ho Chi Minh City after being held over for eight months. As an Asean airline, we aim to increase regional connectivity and to provide more business and leisure opportunities in Vietnam to our AirAsia guests.”

Ho Chi Minh City was formerly called Saigon, the capital of French protectorate Cochinchina. This city located in the south of Vietnam was named after an influential leader of the Vietnamese nationalist movement. Today, Ho Chi Minh City is known to be the business hub of Vietnam and a popular tourist destination often visited for its French architecture amidst tall skyscrapers, fresh local cuisine and historical attractions.
Meanwhile, AirAsia will be launching a new route from Clark to Tagbilaran, as well as increased frequency on multiple existing domestic routes from Clark and Cebu this summer period. These improve connectivity from across the AirAsia Group network to domestic tourist hotspots within the Philippines.
