HCM CITY – Vietjet launched two new international routes -- Hải Phòng-Seoul and HCM City-Kaohsiung -- on Monday.
The new routes are expected to meet the increasing travel demand of travellers, aimed at boosting regional trade and integration, the airline said.
Flights on the Hải Phòng-Seoul route will operate every Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday, with a flying time of some five hours per leg. The route’s flight frequency will be increased to daily operations from January 19, 2017 to February 13, 2017.
“Conveniently located in northeast Việt Nam as the centre for economic and social growth for the region, Hải Phòng has great potential for tourism development with a series of local specialties and services for international tourists to experience,” Vietjet said, adding that it has so far operated 10,000 flights, carrying nearly two million passengers on the nine routes to and from Hải Phòng.
Meanwhile, South Korea is a favourite tourist destination for travellers thanks to a developed entertainment industry, the culture and the shopping malls. With the new route, Vietjet has a total of three services connecting Việt Nam and South Korea, targeted at facilitating travel of individuals at an affordable cost.
The second route, HCM City-Kaohsiung, will have five return flights per week on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. The flight duration is three hours 30 minutes per leg. – VNS
