The announcement is part of its ‘domestic debut’ in Thailand which also includes a Bangkok to Chiang Mai route.

One new international route from Bangkok to Haiphong (Vietnam) was also announced. Vietjet currently operates direct routes from Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi.

Speaking at the announcement ceremony on Tuesday (Sept 6), Tourism and Sports Minister, H.E. Mrs Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, said, “Vietjet’s decision to invest in the future of Thai air travel with a dedicated domestic presence is a big market movement.

“It brings additional capacity to the low-cost flight sector in Thailand, and provides Thai people and global tourists the added benefit of increased affordable ticket choices and enhanced convenience.

“We have an ongoing commitment to improving bilateral relations between Thailand and Vietnam, and so this recent development gives a welcome boost to those efforts in line with the mission of TAT’s Two Countries, One Destination program, which has been running since last year.”

Vietjet’s Vice President, Madam Nguyen Thi Thuy Binh, said, “Three years ago, Thailand became Vietjet’s first international destination. Thailand and Vietnam have shared a close relationship thanks to our similarities in culture, cuisine and character.

“There are now more than 300 Thai expats working in a variety of positions at Vietjet, which is also a driving force for us to further expand our flight network in Thailand today.

The airline also unveiled its promotion campaign, “It’s time to Vietjet”, which offers one million promotional air tickets priced from zero baht (not including taxes). The promotion will run from September 9 to September 11, 2016 from 8pm to 10pm each day through the company’s website: www.vietjetair.com 

The promotion is valid for all flights in Thailand, all domestic routes in Vietnam, and all international routes between Thailand and Vietnam. The travel period is from September 15 to December 31, 2016 (excluding public holidays).

Currently, the airline boasts a fleet of 40 aircraft, including A320s and A321s, and operates 350 flights each day. It has already opened 53 routes in Vietnam and across the region to international destinations such as Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, China and Myanmar. It has carried nearly 25 million passengers to date.

Vietjet said it plans to continue expanding its network across the region and has signed agreements with the world’s leading aircraft manufacturers to purchase more brand-new and modern aircraft.
