The Vietnam service is the airline’s eighth route launch of 2012.
Emirates now operates flights to 13 cities in 10 countries in the Far East; opening up increasingly popular tourist destinations to the airline’s six continent network.
Emirates is marketing Ho Chi Minh City as the ideal gateway to explore Vietnam.
