After I finished my missions in South Vietnam at Can Tho city, the capital city of Mekong Delta. Next, I had to continue my duty at the capital of the country, Hanoi. The best and fastest way to connect between these 2 big cities is by flight. It had many carrier to serve this route as it is one of popular route for domestic traveling in Vietnam. I decided to fly with Vietnam Airlines, the flag carrier of Vietnam as it has reliable and punctuality services. Furthermore, it is full-service airline and air ticket cost was acceptable.

The flight information for this trip follows:

Flight No. : VN 1200 – VIETNAM AIRLINE


Departure Time : 09.40 AM (GMT +7)

Arrival Time : 12.05PM  (GMT +7)

Flight Duration : 2 Hours 25 minutes

Equipment : Airbus A321

Cabin Class : ECONOMY


At traveling date, I arrived Can Tho airport on 08.40am, an hour before the flight time. This airport is compact size. it was not crowded. It took only 5 minutes to complete the checking process and getting boarding pass.


The securing checkpoint and boarding lounge are just next to the check-in counters. We would board the aircraft at gate number 7, it is aerobridge.


The boarding was started on-time. This is the strength point of Vietnam airline compare with another carrier for domestic route.


The seats for economy class was arranged as 3-3, the normal pattern for single aisle aircraft.


The seat pitch was comfortable (my height is 183 cm). It had a magazine and safety instruction in seat pocket.


After boarding competed, the flight was pushed back and taken off on-time……Good Bye Can Tho…….See You Again. 🙂


Then, the cabin crew has served the snack (crab stick bread) with hot tea or coffee.


During almost 2 hours flying time, I could enjoy the sky view and soft drink.


When we were reaching Hanoi, the captain had descended and safely landed at Hanoi – Noi Bai Airport.


The disembarking was performed by bus-gate. Then, I could claim by checked-in baggage at belt number 5.


When I got the checked-in baggage, it had 2 ways to reach the city center, taxi or bus. The taxi and bus stands were just outside the domestic arrival hall.

Hanoi Airport is located 30 km outside the city. The traveling time could be up to an hour.


Now, it meant I have completely arrived Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam. This city is very charming and unique. I could explore many historic and attractive places here. I will tell you again what I could find in Hanoi. Have a wonderful stay in Hanoi. 😍
