Why did the airline choose Thailand as the first destination?

According to the leader of Vietravel Airlines, Thailand is in the top 3 international tourist markets in Vietnam. Vietnam is also in the top 5 largest tourist sources of Thailand with nearly 373,000 visitors after the pandemic. The two countries are not too far from each other and have similarities in culture, simple visa procedures, and low costs. Thus, Thailand continues to be the preferred choice of many Vietnamese tourists.

To operate flights in the domestic market, the airline has experienced many challenges and difficulties before and after Covid-19. Now, it officially launches its first international flight.

In addition, Vietravel has faced many problems as rising inflation and the fuel crisis. Vu Duc Bien, General Director of Vietravel Airlines, said that although Vietravel had to go through many difficulties and challenges, with the group’s efforts and determination, as well as the enthusiasm of Chairman Nguyen Quoc Ky, everyone is always encouraged. 

Vietravel Airlines is Vietnam’s first travel airline with a mission to connect Vietnam’s tourism with the whole world. Thus, no matter how difficult it is, we must fulfill the mission committed to the Government and our nation,” emphasized Vu Duc Bien.

Vietravel Airlines focuses on serving tourists and transmitting the destination’s culture. On Vietravel’s flights, tour guides give an overview of the history, culture, and famous tourist attractions at the destination for passengers.
