Flight schedules

AirFrance (Update July 14)

Comment from Air France: Due to the current circumstances in Ho Chi Minh City and the impact of Directive 16, we had to make some adjustments in our flight schedule between Paris and Ho Chi Minh City.

  • Air France flight AF258 (between CDG-SGN) on Saturday 7 August and Air France flight AF253 (SGN-BKK-CDG) on Sunday 8 August will be canceled.
  • The two Air France rotations on 24-25 July and 14-15 August (CDG-SGN-CDG) will however be operating as scheduled.

In Singapore, the situation isn’t better, the schedule between Singapore and Paris has also been adjusted, as from July 16th, with one weekly flight (Tuesday evening departure) instead of three weekly flights.
