Vietjet has announced the launch of a new route linking Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and the capital city of South Korea, Seoul.
With a frequency of seven return flights per week, the inaugural flight, which will take off on November 7th, will depart Tan Son Nhat International Airport at 00.15 and arrive at Incheon International Airport at 07.25.
The return flight takes off from Incheon International Airport at 11.20 and arrives back in Ho Chi Minh City at 14:50.
Vietjet currently operates one return flight per day between Hanoi and Seoul and the latest international route additionally creates a seamless connection to other parts of Vietnam such as Da Nang, Nha Trang and Phu Quoc Island.
Known to be a new age carrier, Vietjet looks to consistently add innovative and added value services such as in-flight duty free shopping and has recently partnered with Lotteria Vietnam to provide greater choices to its in-flight meal offering.
Vietjet currently operates 150 flights per day with a fleet of 25 Airbus aircraft across 32 routes domestically and internationally.
The airline also offers express check-in at all airports for passengers over 65 years of age, expectant mothers, and families travelling with infants.
These passengers are encouraged to approach Vietjet’s express check-in counters for priority boarding and assistance with carry-on baggage.
