VietJet Aviation Joint Stock Company ( VietJet Air) announced on September 9 that from October 14 the airline will increase the number of flights on many domestic routes.
Accordingly, there will be two round-trip flights daily on the Ho Chi Minh City-Nha Trang route; three round-trip flights daily on the HCMC-Da Nang route; and three daily round trip flights on the Hanoi-Da Nang route.
The budget carrier will also offer a huge promotional program in which it will offer tickets for only VND99,000 (US$4.5). 10,000 promotional tickets will be available on the HCMC-Nha Trang, HCMC-Da Nang and Hanoi-Da Nang routes from this October 14 until March 31, 2013.
VietJet Air currently flies Airbus A320 aircraft to four major hubs of Vietnam -- HCMC, Da Nang, Nha Trang and Hanoi. VietJet Air will now offer 10 return flights a day between HCMC-Hanoi, Hanoi-Da Nang, HCMC-Da Nang and HCMC-Nha Trang. The route linking HCMC and the northern city of Hai Phong will commence on October 1, with one return trip a day.
In late 2012, with the arrival of three more A320 aircraft, VietJet Air expanded its fleet to six aircrafts adding new routes to more destinations in Vietnam as well as Southeast Asia. Routes currently under consideration include Hanoi-Phu Quoc, Hanoi-Dalat, HCMC-Hue and HCMC-Vinh.
Desmond Lin, director of business development at VietJet Air, said “As always VietJet Air makes great efforts to serve passengers by introducing more flights and offering even lower cost fares this time. With VietJet Air becoming both a domestic and international carrier, we believe that passengers will soon enjoy a wider choice of routes for private travel and business purposes both domestically and internationally.”
