There are four key airlines in Vietnam, Vietnam Airlines, Vietjet Air, Jetstar Pacific, and Bamboo Airways.
The quality of Vietnam Airlines is better than other operators. Accordingly, the price is higher. There are several benefits when you travel with Vietnam Airlines. For example, you can have 23kg for checked luggage. You are served food when your flight takes more than one hour.
Different from Vietnam Airlines, Vietjet Air and Jetstar Pacific target low-income customers. The price is good for travellers who consider price as top priority.
The most common problem with low-cost airlines is flight delays and strict luggage rules. When you travel in Vietnam, to save time, Vietnam Airlines is a better choice.
