New service to South Korea

The airline’s announcement earlier this week confirms flights on the Nha Trang – Daegu route will commence on 27 October 2024. The service will link Vietnam’s coastal city Nha Trang with South Korea’s fourth-largest city, Daegu, offering daily flights.

This week, Vietjet celebrates its 10th anniversary, flying to South Korea. In terms of capacity, it is the largest operator between Vietnam and South Korea, connecting Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Hai Phong, Danang, Nha Trang, Phu Quoc, and Dalat with Seoul, Busan, and Daegu in South Korea. 

Direct flights to X’an

Since 1 July, Vietjet has expanded its routes to China with the introduction of direct flights from Vietnam’s southern metropolis, Ho Chi Minh City, to China’s prominent historical city Xi’an. 

Vietjet is the sole airline offering direct flights on the route with four round trips per week, following the launch of Shanghai and Chengdu services earlier this year.

The airline’s latest developments align with a surge in international air passenger demand and air cargo markets across Asia-Pacific, driven by heightened global economic activities. In May, airlines in the region transported 27.9 million passengers, marking a significant 23.9% year-on-year increase, the Association of Asia Pacific Airlines (AAPA) reported this week.
