To further expand its international operation, Vietjet will relaunch the services linking Ho Chi Minh City with Thailand’s capital city of Bangkok starting 21 January. The airline will operate two weekly round trips on every Friday and Saturday between Tan Son Nhat International Airport and Suvarnabhumi International Airport, Thailand’s largest aviation hub.
Vietjet Vice President Nguyen Thanh Son said: “We are delighted to reconnect Vietnam with Thailand, one of the world’s most favourite tourism destinations after a long hiatus due to the pandemic. The service resumption between the financial, cultural and travel hubs of Ho Chi Minh City and Bangkok will also contribute to the two countries’ economic recovery while meeting the increasing travel demand of people in the region, especially when the Lunar New Year holidays draw near and the peak travel season in summer follows.”
Vietjet has also resumed a series of international routes connecting Hanoi/Ho Chi Minh City with Tokyo (Narita International Airport), Taipei, Seoul (Incheon International Airport) and Singapore with one round trip per week each since early January 2022. In the next phase, it will reopen its entire international flights and look to open new routes to India and Russia, and other locations. In Thailand, the carrier currently operates an expansive domestic flight network including the services from Bangkok to top business and travel destinations such as Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phuket, Krabi, Hat Yai, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Surat Thani, Udon Thani, Khon Kae and Ubon Ratchathani in addition to other cross regional routes.
Vietjet has prepared for the resumption of regular international flights with new aviation products and affordable fares to offer its passengers safe and enjoyable flying experiences on new and modern aircraft. Especially, the airline will offer free COVID-19 PCR test packages to all passengers flying internationally from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. To ensure good flight experiences, passengers are advised to follow localities’ regulations on disease prevention and control, and immigration regulations of destination countries including vaccine passports, negative PCR tests, quarantine, and accommodation.
