Vietnam's low-cost air carrier Vietjet opened a direct air route linking Hanoi and Hiroshima on Sunday, marking the airline’s eighth air route connecting Vietnam and Japan.

At the inauguration ceremony, Hiroshima Governor Yuzaki Hidehiko said, "Hiroshima Prefecture has close ties with Vietnam, as many companies have advanced into the Vietnamese market and many Vietnamese people live in the prefecture.

"We are looking forward to the start of direct flights between Vietnam and our prefecture, fostering further exchanges in business, tourism, and various other fields.”

"Vietjet’s debut flight today marks the first new international service to be launched at Hiroshima Airport post-pandemic," said president and representative director of the airport Yasuhiro Nakamura.

There are two return flights per week on Thursdays and Sundays on the Hanoi-Hiroshima route, with flights lasting for over four hours each.
