Vietjet to open Đà Nẵng-Bangkok route


HCM CITY — Vietjet will launch its newest international route connecting the central city of Đà Nẵng and Bangkok on October 15, the airline announced last week.

The new international route emphasises Vietjet’s goal of increasing the number of destinations for the convenience and enjoyment of its flyers, the carrier said in a statement.

Daily flight service from Đà Nẵng to Bangkok departs Đà Nẵng at 1.35pm and arrives at 3.15pm, while the flight leaves Suvarnabhumi airport at 11.10am and arrives in Đà Nẵng at 12.50pm.

Taking just one hour and 40 minutes, the flight connects two vibrant cities together. Bangkok is the capital of Thailand, the land of smiles, with popular tourist attractions such as the exotic grand palace and weekend market shopping paradise. From Bangkok, passengers can also connect to other Thai destinations such as Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phuket and Krabi, according to Vietjet.

Currently, Vietjet operates 60 A320, A321 aircraft with more than 385 flights daily, carrying more than 60 million passengers to date, with 95 routes covering destinations in Việt Nam as well as international destinations such as Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, mainland China, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia and Cambodia.

The airline said it will continue to expand its flight network across the Asia-Pacific region and has signed contracts to buy new-generation aircraft from prestigious global plane manufacturers.

On August, Vietjet was recognised as one of the 1,000 biggest tax payers in Việt Nam in 2017 by the Ministry of Finance’s General Department of Taxation.

This recognition resulted from Vietjet’s business performance in 2017. Accordingly, the airline recorded revenue of over VNĐ42.3 trillion (US$1.86 billion) and pre-tax profit of nearly VNĐ5.1 trillion ($224 million), increases of 54 per cent and 73 per cent respectively, compared to the previous period.
