So $8USD... and then the usual $200 airport charges and taxes that usually come with these offers? Mind you, that makes a weekend getaway a whole lot easier.

I haven't flown in a long time. So I don't know if you're exaggerating or not. If not could you give a rough breakdown of that $200?

VietJet is cheap. Flew with them SGN to Cam Ranh (Nha Trang) last year for 370k vnd booked the day before. That's about $16.

The plane seemed a bit old, the pilots were just out of flight school and it was an up-and-down no-frills flight. Anyway, there plane was full and there were no problems. The only thing is that the weight limit is 7kg as far as I remember. They didn't count my laptop bag though.

The $8 for the SGN -PP flight is obviously a promotional fare available for a limited time. As it says, taxes and fees will be added, resulting in maybe half a mil?

Be interesting to see the difference in prices between the buses and new flight service.

I'm taking a cheap shot at AirAsia and their ilk that advertise a special price of $99 but then by the time you've booked you end up paying $299. Some airlines give the final price straightup, others practice what is called trickle charging.

Vietjet Airlines Whiz In Style Into Phnom Penh
12 December 2017
Image
- New-age airliner, Vietjet Air, celebrates another major milestone offering direct flight services between Ho Chi Minh City and Phnom Penh from December 2017.

Since connecting Hanoi and Siem Reap by daily direct flights, Vietjet has been applauded for the extra convenience it provides to travellers shuttling between the countries of Vietnam and Cambodia.

This recent addition, linking the major hubs of Phnom Penh and Ho Chi Minh City, marks yet another significant milestone for the recently-listed airline company. The flight between the two cities takes approximately 45 minutes each way, reducing an otherwise long travelling time which people are usually required to spend by road.

The flights are scheduled to leave from Ho Chi Minh City daily at 5.35pm local time and arrive in Phnom Penh at 6.20pm local time. From Phnom Penh, a daily flight departs at 7.30pm to arrive in Ho Chi Minh City at 8.15pm.
