Travel to Quy Nhon

There are two main international airports in Vietnam : Hanoi (Noi Bai airport : HAN) and Ho Chi Minh (Tan Son Nhut airport : SGN).
As there more flights from Ho Chi Minh to Quy nhon, it is more convenient to fly from foreign countries to Ho Chi Minh than to Hanoi.

Below is an indicative flight schedule. Please check before reservation.
Note: it is not uncommon that airlines change the flight schedule (even by more than 2h) a few weeks before departure. You should plan your trip accordingly.
