Speaking at the event, Minister of Transport Nguyen Van The said that Viet Nam’s aviation sector has recorded rapid and constant development over the time, including Vietjet Air, the first private carrier of Viet Nam. After the launch of the Vietnam-China route, Vietjet Air’s network has been expanded to 50 cities in China. 

He voiced his hope that in the coming time, VietjetAir will open flights to all 88 China’s international airports, thereby bolstering cooperation, exchanges and trade towards the development of the bilateral friendship.

The leader of Vietjet Air said that the airline launched its first service on the Viet Nam-China air route in 2014, bringing passengers to Kunming airport in the south western province of Yunnan. 

Since then, Vietjet Air has worked to expand its network to other cities of China such as Chengdu, Chongqing, Tianjin, Shanghai and Ha’erbin, and more.  

Vietjet Air had transported five million passengers between two countries in more than 23,000 roundtrip flights, contributing to the bilateral trade and tourism development, he said. 

The airline operates over 400 flights per day, with 113 routes covering destinations across Viet Nam and Asian destinations such as Thailand, Singapore, the Republic of Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Myanmar, and Cambodia. The carrier has to date carried approximately 20 million passengers in its international routes, they added.

Vietjet Air is a fully-fledged member of International Air Transport Association (IATA) with the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certificate.

In Viet Nam, Vietjet Air is the first airline that operates as a new-age airline offering flexible, cost-saving ticket fares and diversified services to meet customers’ demands. 

It provides not only transport services but also uses the latest e-commerce technologies to offer various products and services for consumers.
