Out with the old, in with the new. Jetstar is scrapping its thrice-weekly service between Ho Chi Minh City and Sydney, and replacing it with a new Ho Chi Minh City – Darwin route, which will operate five flights a week. The changes will take effect on September.
The schedule change is part of Jetstar’s bigger plans for Darwin. Jetstar is gearing up for more international flights, and is setting up Darwin to handle the increase. The change will also facilitate increased traffic between Darwin and domestic destinations Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide. Return flights from these destinations to HCMC and Singapore will pass through Darwin.
