Vietjet launched on June 4 direct flights between India’s Mumbai and Vietnam’s Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, with three and four weekly services respectively.
The flights land at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai.
The new flights follow on from Vietjet’s recent commencement of New Delhi-Ho Chi Minh City/Hanoi services.
Vietjet’s vice president Do Xuan Quang said: “We believe that the two services from Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi to Mumbai as well as the coming Phu Quoc-Mumbai route will strengthen the ongoing relationship of Vietnam’s two biggest cities with Mumbai.”
The airline will increase the frequency of services on the new route should demand call for it.
The Phu Quoc-Mumbai service is slated to launch on September 8, 2022, with four round trips per week.
