As the demand for travel between Vietnam and India has risen, VietJet has decided to start three new direct routes to India. The flights will connect New Delhi and Mumbai to Vietnam’s three largest hubs of Da Nang, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
The new flights will commence on May 14, 2020. The New Delhi – Da Nang route will commence operations with a frequency of five flights per week. Routes connecting Mumbai with Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City will operate with three weekly flights and four weekly flights from May 15, 2020 and May 16, 2020 respectively.
VietJet now has the most direct routes between India and Vietnam
With the launch of these three new routes, VietJet will become the operator with the most direct routes between India and Vietnam, offering five direct routes from and to India. Presently, the carrier operates the HCMC/Hanoi – New Delhi services at a frequency of four weekly flights and three weekly flights respectively.
Nguyen Thanh Son, Vice President, Vietjet said: “We are excited to continue connecting Vietnam destinations to the market of over 1.2 billion population in India after receiving positive feedback regarding our previous two direct flights that linked both Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi with New Delhi.
He added, “With just over five hours of flight time per leg, and a convenient flight schedule throughout the week, Vietjet’s newest routes between Vietnam and India will create many more trade and tourism opportunities between the two countries, helping to boost the economies of both. The expansion of Vietjet’s flight network into India also reaffirms the airline’s ongoing commitment to continuously help flyers save on cost and time.”
