The Bangkok-Fukuoka will operate three flights a week from July 15 on Tuesday, Friday and Sunday.
Vietjet’s Vice President Nguyen Thanh Son, said: “Vietjet already operated five direct services between Vietnam and Japan before pandemic, which were warmly welcomed by world travelers. The new services to Fukuoka and Nagoya from Hanoi and Bangkok following the resumption of existing routes confirm Vietjet’s resumption and continuous expansion post pandemic with up to eight direct services connecting Vietnam, Thailand, or Southeast Asia with Japan. I believe that the additional services will offer diversified travel destinations and flight times at the most affordable costs to travelers not only in the region but also around the world following the easing travel restriction in the coming time.”
