Vietnam has three major International airports ie – Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Danang.
There are no direct flights from India to Vietnam, but it is well connected by many budget airlines such as Scoot Airlines, Thai Air Asia and Silk air to name a few.
Tip 1:- Scoot airline is cheapest airline to fly to Vietnam from India, but make sure that you check the visa requirements as most nationals would require Transit visa for Singapore.
Tip 2:- Flight tickets from India to Ho chi Minh City is cheaper as opposed to the flight tickets to the other cities in Vietnam because of the distance, but make sure you book a one way to ticket to Ho chi Minh City and fly out from Hanoi ie the north of Vietnam, that way you do not need to come back to the same city to fly back.
