Vietjet has officially launched four more services linking top destinations of Vietnam and India including Ho Chi Minh City/Hanoi – Mumbai and Phu Quoc – New Delhi/Mumbai.
The new routes’ launch ceremony was held in Mumbai during the visit of Ho Chi Minh City’s leaders to the Indian city as Vietnam and India mark their 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations, the budget airline said in a press release on Wednesday.
The Phu Quoc – Mumbai route will operate four weekly flights every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday, starting from September 8.
The services between Phu Quoc and New Delhi will commence on September 9, with three weekly flights on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday.
The Ho Chi Minh City/Hanoi – Mumbai routes already started operations in early June 2022.
The two countries’ first direct services connecting Ho Chi Minh City/Hanoi and New Delhi resumed operations in April this year, with three to four flights per week for each one.
“Vietnam-India’s flight network expansion will boost and strengthen travel connectivity and trade ties between the two countries,” said Nguyen Thanh Son, Vietjet’s vice-president.
“We have been the first carrier operating direct services between Vietnam’s capital city of Hanoi and its largest city of Ho Chi Minh with India’s capital city New Delhi.
“Vietjet’s flight network covering up to six direct routes between Vietnam and India also marks a milestone in the two countries’ 50 years of diplomatic relations, since 1972.”
