Bad news for anyone wanting to travel to Vietnam. Vietnam Airlines is replacing its Kunming flight to Hanoi with Chengdu. The last flight out of Kunming is on 25 March and the first from Chengdu on 26 June. No chinese airline covers the KMG-HAN sector. It's ironic that just as Kunming is getting a new airport we lose an international flight. But that may also be part of the reason. Did a dramatic rise in fees at the new airport compared to the current one have a part in Vietnam Airlines' decision? Anyway, I was lucky that I got back on one of the last flights!
