HCMC – Thai Vietjet Air, a subsidiary of Vietnam’s low-cost carrier Vietjet Air, will start service on a route connecting Phu Quoc Island, which is off the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang, with the Thai capital city of Bangkok from October 12.
The carrier will operate four weekly flights on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays on the new route, with a flight time of one hour and 15 minutes.
“Vietjet’s new international services will continue to meet the region’s growing travel demand and boost trade, international tourism and aviation recovery,” said a Vietjet representative.
The budget carrier currently offers services between Vietnam and Thailand on the Bangkok-Hanoi/HCMC/Danang and the HCMC-Phuket routes.
On September 1, Vietjet will resume services on the HCMC-Chiang Mai route.
Until now, Thai Vietjet has expanded its flight network to many international destinations in Asia such as Fukuoka in Japan, Taipei in Taiwan and Ahmedabad in India to serve the growing travel demand.
Further, Vietnam and Thailand have restored their entry regulations to the pre-pandemic status.
