Emirates has entered a codeshare agreement with Ho Chi Minh City-based Jetstar Pacific. Following this new agreement, the Emirates’ passengers will be able to enjoy domestic flights within Vietnam, in addition to flights connecting Vietnam with Singapore, Thailand, and Australia.

The new codeshare agreement connects Emirates passengers to 14 Vietnamese cities beyond Ho Chi Minh City and six cities beyond Hanoi. The Vietnamese cities covered by the new codeshare routes include Ban Me Thuot, Phuquoc, Dalat, Quinhon, Tamky-Chulai, Hue, Pleiku, Nha Trang, Vinh City, and Tuy Hoa.

The Dubai-based carrier will also operate codeshare flights with Jetstar Pacific, from the latter’s hub in Ho Chi Minh City, Singapore, and Bangkok. These destinations serve as connections for Emirates passengers continuing their travel to Brisbane, Melbourne or Sydney.
