PR Director of ICS Travel Group Anna Filatovskaya said demand for Vietnam tours hiked by 15 – 20 percent year-on-year, especially during March 8 holiday. Meanwhile, tour reservation for May also increased significantly.

From July 2, the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines plans to switch its flights from Domodedovo airport to Sheremetyevo airport so that Vietnam Airlines and Russia’s Aeroflot could launch codeshare flights to Vietnamese and Russian destinations.

According to a representative from Russia’s Annex tour agency, tourists on chartered flights bound for Vietnam tend to choose five-star hotels and all-inclusive packages.

Nha Trang – Da Lat, Nha Trang – Phan Thiet and Phan Thiet – Phan Rang tours, as well as those with lodging in Vinpearl hotel and resort chain, are becoming increasingly popular.

Thanks to the availability of more direct chartered flights to Vietnam during summer, tour prices tend down significantly compared to those to Thailand.
