April 29, 2022

Thai Vietjet has successfully commenced the maiden flight from Bangkok to Singapore, with a welcome ceremony at Singapore Changi International Airport.

The maiden flight VZ620 from Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport safely landed at Changi International Airport with a warm welcome from H.E.Mr Chutintorn Gongsakdi, Ambassador of Thailand to Singapore; representative leaders of Tourism Authority of Thailand for Singapore and the Philippines, Changi Airport Group; and Mr Luong Truong An, Executive Vice President, Thai Vietjet.

On the inaugural flight, the first group of passengers to Singapore were welcomed with the signature in-flight performance ‘Fly for Love’ from the Thai Vietjet cabin crew and received a special souvenir from the airline.

“We are excited to welcome Thai Vietjet Air to the Changi family, joining its sister airline Vietjet Air. Passengers on the new services will benefit from the airline’s strong domestic network, with more travel options between Singapore and Thailand, via Bangkok and Phuket. Thailand was Changi Airport’s 5th largest passenger market pre-Covid, and has consistently been within our top 10 markets even during the pandemic. As of April 2022, we have seen a 36% recovery in seat capacity between the two countries and we look forward to welcoming back more passengers at Changi Airport as travel in the region resumes,” said Mr Lim Ching Kiat, Managing Director, Air Hub Development, Changi Airport Group.
