Silk Air operates three flights a week.

German carrier Lufthansa has announced plans to begin direct flights from Berlin to Ha Noi.

Besides German businessmen and tourists, there is also a huge demand from the tens of thousands of Vietnamese living and studying in that country.

Vietnam Airlines only flies to Frankfurt.
