Vietjet has started direct routes from Hanoi to two destinations in Japan – Fukuoka and Nagoya – as well as reinstated services to Busan in South Korea.
The Hanoi-Fukuoka route operates thrice-weekly on every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, while the Hanoi–Nagoya route operates four times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
With these new services, Vietjet has increased its connections between Vietnam and Japan to seven services per week. Vietjet currently operates direct flights between Hanoi/Ho Chi Minh City and Tokyo (Narita)/ Osaka with a daily return flight on each route.
The airline also resumed its Hanoi–Busan service on July 1, becoming the first carrier post-pandemic to connect Vietnam to South Korea. The return service currently operates thrice weekly on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, but will increase its frequency to a daily return flight from July 12.
Presently, Vietjet operates six other routes between Vietnam and South Korea, linking Nha Trang, Phu Quoc, Hai Phong, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Danang with Seoul (Incheon International Airport).
