In the third quarter of 2018, travelers from India will be able to fly direct to Vietnam and vice versa following an announcement made at the recent Vietnam – India Business Forum. The move is set to create bigger opportunities for the airline as there are currently no direct flights from India to Vietnam.
The announcement which was witnessed by H.E Vietnam President Tran Dai Quang and senior leaders of Vietnam and India also marks a significant milestone for the country especially in light of the 45th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and India and the 10th anniversary of strategic partnership between the two countries.
The first route is scheduled to connect Ho Chi Minh City with New Delhi on a basis of four flights per week.
The introduction of the new route thus presents Vietjet with an opportunity to not only tap into the growing tourism market but also facilitate trade integration and exchange between Vietnam and India.
