Vietjet’s Vice President Nguyen Thanh Son, said: “We are very excited to fly the first direct flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Queensland which is called the Sunshine state in Australia. The addition of Brisbane to our list of destinations would be another development to broadly connect Australia and Vietnam.
“Especially, with our recently introduced connecting services through Ho Chi Minh City and soon other Vietnamese hubs, Vietjet can bring more passengers from Asia and European countries to Australia.
“And vice versa, Australians now would find it easy and economical to fly across Asian nations across its vast network which serves Japan, Hong Kong, South Korea, Taiwan, mainland China, Thailand, India, Kazakhstan, etc. and other Vietnamese touristy coastal cities named Da Nang, Nha Trang and Phu Quoc. I believe that our services would be a catalyst for the further growth of tourism and trade between the two nations, and among the regions in the coming years.”
The airline has a flight network covering around 450 flights daily on 160 routes throughout Vietnam and Vietnam with a variety of Asia Pacific destinations.
Vietjet will deploy the Airbus A330-300 onto the Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane routes with a configuration of 12 SkyBoss Business seats, and 365 seats in SkyBoss, Deluxe and Eco classes.
