VASCO Air Vietnam
Vietnam Air Services Company (VASCO) is a small airline that predominantly operates in the South of Vietnam from 2006. Although it is still a young firm in the domestic airlines market, it has its own advantage such as frequent flights to many popular tourism destinations in the area like Phu Quoc or Con Dao Island. Other advantages of VASCO include low cost ticket and collaboration with tourist agency, which offer add-on service such as airport transfer or discounts for longer travel time tourists. However, as the airline is only using small civil aircrafts such as ATR-72 or AN-38, the number of passengers travel with VASCO is tiny compared to other air corporations. It is still a good choice if you want to get around the South region of Vietnam by airplanes.
In the carriage of VASCO aircrafts, passengers can carry only one piece of luggage with the size limitation for the cabin luggage is 7kg in weight and 125cm in the sum of three dimensions (length, width and height). Also, passengers are able carry personal items such as purses/small hand bags, umbrella, mobile phone, entertainment devices, magazine or instant food. Weapon and armory are not permitted to carry one the cabin for any reason.
Adult passengers can register for 20kg of free checked luggage and other additional luggage with fee but the total checked baggage must below 32kg in weight and 203 cm in the sum of the three dimensions. Also, if the passengers travel with children under 2 years old, they are allowed to check 10kg more. Checked baggage service is registered at the ticket agency or the airport.
VASCO Safety Record
VASCO operates some small air route in Vietnam, including flight to and from Ca Mau, Can Tho, Phu Quoc and Con Dao. Most of the flights involve one point in mainland and the other at a distant island. VASCO has kept a clean profile since it began to operate in 2006. However, please bear in mind that all flights operated by VASCO involve smaller aircrafts. As the main website is quite slow, you can also book direct on Vietnam Airlines website as many flights are code-shared between the two airlines.
