SINGAPORE, 3 December 2019: Vietjet has announced plans for new routes that will connect some of Vietnam’s largest and fast-growing tourist destinations, such as Dalat, Can Tho, Nha Trang and Phu Quoc with Seoul.
The announcement ceremony took place during the Vietnam – South Korea Business Forum late last week in Seoul, South Korea, attended by Prime Minister of Vietnam, Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Deputy Prime Minister of South Korea, Hong Nam-Ki and senior leaders from both the South Korean and Vietnamese governments.
Connecting Seoul with Dalat in Vietnam’s central highlands, Can Tho in Southwest Vietnam’s Mekong Delta, Nha Trang on the south-central coast of Vietnam and Phu Quoc Island means that Vietjet’s new routes will boost tourism and trade in the two regions.
Starting January 2020, the new Seoul – Can Tho route will be served by three flights per week, while the new Seoul – Dalat route will have four flights weekly.
More flights are planned for the two current routes linking Seoul (Incheon) to Nha Trang and Phu Quoc to meet the increase in passenger demand.
With the two new routes, Vietjet operates the most flights connecting Vietnam and South Korea with 11 routes and up to 480 flights per month.
