VIETJET Air, which made its debut last December with four-daily flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi (TTG Asia e-Daily, December 16), is thinking of spreading its wings beyond Vietnam.
“Response on the inaugural domestic Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh City route has been quite incredible so far,” said VietJet Air’s managing director, Luu Duc Khanh.
“We’ve had load factors of over 90 per cent, and we hope to be able to repeat this performance on international routes.”
Luu told TTG Asia e-Daily that a feasibility study was currently underway, with regional destinations in China, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, Thailand and Malaysia under consideration.
The airline intends to start international flights by the end of the year, he added.
