Vietjet and JAL signed a Memorandum of Understanding for commercial cooperation in 2017 and will now offer codeshare flights on domestic destinations in Vietnam and on international flights between Vietnam and Japan operated by Vietjet.
Applicable routes operated by Vietjet include domestic flights such as Ho Chi Minh City-Hanoi; Ho Chi Minh City-Da Nang; and Hanoi-Da Nang and international flights such as Hanoi-Osaka (Kansai).
Codeshare flights are available for travel from October 28, 2018. The Hanoi-Osaka route specifically inaugurates operation on November 8, 2018.
Based on the agreement, the two airlines will also aim to expand their codeshare routes in the near future, including other flight services between Japan and Vietnam as well as JAL’s domestic flights, and Vietjet’s domestic flights.
