Thai Vietjet, a subsidiary of Vietnamese budget airline Vietjet Air, has confirmed its operations of weekly semi-commercial flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Bangkok each Friday, starting January 8.
The airline hopes to gradually recover the travel and trade between the two countries after a suspension of the route since March this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Thai Vietjet flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Bangkok are expected to provide convenient choices for passengers returning home following travel restrictions.
Passengers, either Thai citizens or foreigners, who travel from Ho Chi Minh City to Bangkok are advised to visit skyfun.vietjetair.com to search for and book flights.
Travel instructions, including required documents and quarantine conditions by Thai authorities, are also provided during the booking process.
For more information regarding the travel regulations in Thailand, passengers may contact email@example.com and LINE Official account @rtcg.hcmc.
In addition, those who want to travel from Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City, may contact Thai Vietjet’s helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information and guidance.
Passengers are required to prepare and complete all needed documents prior to departure to Vietnam, before taking standard quarantine upon arrival.
Vietnam’s government allows entry to skilled workers, experts, diplomats, and Vietnamese repatriates, who are all subject to mandatory quarantine upon arrival, although it still closes the border to international arrivals to stem coronavirus spread.
Commercial passenger flights to Thailand have also been suspended until further notice.
Nevertheless, the Thai government organizes repatriation flights for Thai nationals to return to Thailand on a regular basis and the semi-commercial flights that are permitted to enter Thailand.
