Earlier, the airline operated three direct flights from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to Bacolod in the Philippines, to carry the national football team and fans to the city where the semifinal first leg took place. These flights, instead of the normal civilian one which includes several transit stops and may take up to 15 hours, only last three to four hours.

The first match saw Vietnam winning 2-1 against the host team. The two are scheduled to meet again at Hanoi’s My Dinh National Stadium on December 6. The winners will take on either Thailand or Malaysia in the final.

The AFF Suzuki Cup 2018 runs from November 8 to December 15. This year, it features a new playing format, with both home and away ties.

In the tournament’s history, Vietnam won the championship just once in 2008. With the leadership of coach Park Hang-seo and the current squad, both Vietnamese and Korean football fans are hopeful that the S-shaped country’s team will take the trophy for the second time after 10 years awaiting.
