Flights to Vietnam drop down to $240 return
Flying AirAsia to Ho Chi Minh City.
Just two weeks ago Jetstar announced it would be launching non-stop flights between Sydney and Melbourne and Ho Chi Minh City from May 2017 by offering flights from $159 one-way.
Not to be beaten on price, AirAsia has now slashed its prices with flights starting from $240 return on select flights from March to May 2017.
The lowest fare in AirAsia's sale is from Perth to Ho Chi Minh at $240 return, closely followed by Melbourne to Ho Chi Minh City from $364 return and Sydney to Ho Chi Minh City from $415 return.
While these might seem high compared to Jetstar's launch prices, right now prices on Jetstar's website start from $259 one-way for Sydney departures and $249 one-way for Melbourne departures, so these AirAsia fares look competitive.
All AirAsia flights to Ho Chi Minh City include a stopover in Kuala Lumpur.
Being a budget carrier, AirAsia's fares do not include extras such as baggage and on-board food and beverages. These can be added during the booking process for an additional fee.
This AirAsia deal is not part of any particular promotion and is available until sold out.
