VGP -  Viet Nam’s budget carrier Vietjet will launch a direct air service connecting Ha Noi City and Osaka (Japan) on November 8, looking to further boost tourism and trade integration between the two countries and across the region.

Accordingly, using Vietjet’s new and modern A320 aircraft, the Ha Noi-Osaka route will operate on a daily basis with a flight time of more than four hours per leg. As proposed, a flight will depart from Hanoi each day at 1:45am and arrive in Osaka at around 7:50am (all local times). 

Coming in the other direction, a flight will take off from Osaka at 9:20am and land in Ha Noi at around 1:10pm (all local times). Vietjet’s new service to Osaka will bring the airline’s total number of international routes up to 45. The airline's domestic network includes 38 routes.

Ticket sales for the new route is expected to be available from June 8, 2018.

Vietjet’s vice president Nguyen Thị Thuy Binh said the Ha Noi-Osaka route will be the first service for Vietjet’s expansion into Japan, the Land of the Rising Sun.

Vietjet will continue to open new routes connecting Viet Nam and Japan’s economic and tourism hubs to diversify destination choices for its consumers and to better meet the growing demand for air travel between the two countries and beyond as well as to better connect with the rest of the world, she said.

Osaka, the capital city of Osaka Prefecture, is Japan's third largest city with a population of over 2.7 million people. It is not only the capital of Kansai Region but also considered to be a cultural treasure of Japan for its striking traditional architecture and authentic Japanese cuisine. 

At the ceremony, Vietjet, SBI Leasing Services, Natixis and some of the Japanese equity arrangers also signed a MOU worth a total of nearly US$600 million for the purpose of aircraft financing.
