HÀ NỘI — Vietnam Airlines will move its operations to Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 4, which will open in the near future.
Following negotiations, Vietnam Airlines said it would be one of nine airlines to operate from T4, including Air Asia Group, Cathay Pacific, Cebu Pacific, Korean Air and Spring Airlines.
Vietnam Airlines officially launched its direct route between Hà Nội and Singapore on July 1, 1995, with two flights per week.
It currently operates 14 flights per week on the HAN-SIN route (from Hà Nội) and 21 flights per week on the SGN-SIN route (from HCM City) on A321 aircraft.
The modern-looking T4 is inspired by the purple orchid, Singapore’s national flower. The image of the orchid appears on the architecture and interiors of the terminal, with some 1,000 tall trees grown at the site.
There is a shuttle bus service, with a bus every five minutes, connecting Singapore’s T4 and remainder terminals at the airport. With this new terminal, Changi Airport’s capacity is enhanced to receive 82 million passengers per year, with 90 seconds per flight on average. — VNS
