Specifically, the routes will be operated with a frequency of 3 flights per week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on Airbus A321 aircraft. From October 30, , the airline plans to increase the frequency to 5 flights per week on the routes.

Besides the above routes, Vietnam Airlines is currently operating another trans-Indochina route between Hanoi - Vientiane (Laos) - Phnom Penh (Cambodia) - Ho Chi Minh City with a frequency of 7 flights per week on Airbus A321.

The restoration of the trans-Indochina routes between the three countries Vietnam - Laos - Cambodia after a period of suspension due to the pandemic will bring many convenient flight options for tourists to visit world cultural heritages, and support Vietnam Airlines' international flight network.

These routes will contribute positively to the recovery and development of the tourism industry in the region, as well as in trade, investment, and cultural exchange between Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

Vietnam Airlines has operated routes to Siem Reap since 2000 and to Luang Prabang since 2006. As of 2019, Vietnam Airlines transported nearly 400,000 passengers on trans-Indochina routes.

Vietnam Airlines is currently continuing to promote international flight products, including opening new routes, increasing frequency and restoring a series of routes to serve tourists during the summer peak, including opening a route between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City - Mumbai (India) since May 20, Hanoi - Melbourne from June 15; restoring Hanoi - Chengdu (China) from June 4; increasing the frequency of the routes Da Nang - Narita, Hanoi - Fukuoka, Hanoi/Ho Chi Minh City – Hongkong (China), Hanoi - Singapore, Hanoi/Ho Chi MinhCity - Siem Reap, and Ho Chi Minh City - Sydney/Melbourne/Paris./.
