Vietjet has announced four new services linking India and Vietnam to mark the airline’s post-pandemic return and continued expansion in the country. The services include Mumbai-Hanoi, Mumbai-Ho Chi Minh City, New Delhi-Phu Quoc and Mumbai-Phu Quoc.
The direct services from Mumbai to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi will commence on June 3 and June 4, with a frequency of four weekly return flights and three weekly return flights respectively.
From September 9, the Mumbai to Phu Quoc route will operate four round trips per week while the New Delhi to Phu Quoc route will operate with a frequency of three round trips per week.
Prior to the pandemic, Vietjet had operated two direct routes linking New Delhi with Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City in addition to charter flights from Vietnam to Bodh Gaya. The two existing services between New Delhi to both Vietnam destinations will resume on April 29 and April 30 respectively, with a frequency of three weekly return flights on each route.
“We are thrilled to continue connecting Vietnam with India, the country of 1.4 billion population, via six direct routes, and re-energise our operations right in the post pandemic environment,” said Dinh Viet Phuong, managing director, Vietjet.
He added: “Vietjet’s renewed and increased connectivity between Vietnam and India will create many more trade and tourism opportunities between the two countries, helping to boost the economies of both. The expansion of Vietjet’s flight network into India also reaffirms the airline’s ongoing commitment to continuously help travellers save on cost and time. Passengers can enjoy flying on our new and modern aircraft, and taking transit flights to famous destinations in South-east Asia, such as Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, and many other countries, thanks to Vietjet’s extensive flight network in the Asia Pacific region.”
