A flight to Hanoi, Thailand, from New Zealand takes approximately 33h at the quicker end of the spectrum. The flight time from New Zealand to Hanoi does range depending on a couple of factors, such as how many layovers are on your journey. There aren’t many flights on this route with only a single layover, so you will likely have from two to three. Another reason your flight time may be longer is due to the amount of time during your layovers. Some layovers may only be 1h, while others may be around 7h long. To get to Hanoi quickly, try to get a flight that only has one layover or has layovers with short durations.
Unfortunately, there are no direct flights from New Zealand to Hanoi. Your quicker flights would include a single layover; for example, a flight run by Emirates and has a layover in Dubai. Other airlines that run this route include Jetstar, Air New Zealand and Qantas Airways, and some of the possible layover cities are Auckland (if you are not flying directly from Auckland), Kuala Lumpur, Melbourne and Doha. Your faster routes will be from Auckland, New Zealand, as flights from any other city in New Zealand have to fly through Auckland before leaving the country. New Zealand to Hanoi flight deals are often found with routes that have fewer layovers and are faster.
