HCM CITY — Vietjet is giving away 23,000 tickets priced from VNĐ23,000 (US$1), to celebrate the victory of U23 Vietnam advancing to the final match of the 2018 AFC U23 Championship.
The cheap airfares, which are available from now until January 27 on website www.vietjetair.com, are valid across all Vietjet’s international and domestic routes for the flight period from March 1 to December 31.
“With hundreds of millions of football fans, Vietjet is proud of what U23 Vietnam’s “bravery warriors” have done at the 2018 AFC U23 Championship and expects our team will be confident, win at the final match, and bring the greatest happiness to our nation,” the airline said in its statement.
Earlier on Wednesday, Vietjet said it will co-operate with the tour provider - Vietravel - to operate two direct round-trip flights from HCM City to Changzhou to meet the demand of football fans going to China to support their team at the final match.
The VJ2612 and VJ2610 flights will depart from HCM City at 6.35am and 6.50am on Saturday and return home the same day on the VJ2613 and VJ2611 flights from Changzhou at 10.45pm (local time) and 11pm at the end of the match.
Vietjet said football fans can contact Vietravel to register for the flights. The Chinese embassy also strengthened work from January 24-26 to grant visas to Vietnamese visitors. — VNS
