Last week, Vietjet announced it would reconnect flights from Vietnam to five major Indian cities, expected to be completed in early November this year.
Previously, flights to India had to be suspended from March 2020 due to the impact of the epidemic at that time. Vietjet will open a series of new routes from Hanoi/Ho Chi Minh City/Da Nang/Phu Quoc to major Indian cities including Ahmedabad, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Mumbai, and New Delhi.
Currently, Vietjet is serving 4 routes from Hanoi/Ho Chi Minh City to New Delhi and Mumbai, the two largest political, economic, and tourist centers of India with 3-4 flights/week, alternating between destinations.
Nguyen Thanh Son, Deputy General Director of Vietjet, said that with the rapid growth of passengers via flights between Vietnam and India recently, Vietjet continues to prioritize opening new and increasing the frequency of routes between the two countries. The addition of additional flight networks helps to enhance connectivity and tourism, develop trade between the two countries.
