VietJet Air has once again taken out the Best Ultra Low-Cost Airline for 2019 with its wonderful cabin crew and ultra-low prices.

Flight attendants love their job and pilots give passengers a commentary of where they are and the landmarks below.

Since launching in December 2011, the airline has quickly grown its fleet and subsequently its number of destinations opening up travel to all including those that perhaps couldn’t afford air travel before. Editor-in-Chief Geoffrey Thomas commented that the airline is “very clever in its marketing but behind that fun is a very smart and serious business plan that brings affordable travel to millions.”

“What a great operation and one that is turning heads.”

Vietjet Air operates a fleet of A320s in a 3-3 configuration with black leather seats. A special business class configuration (Skyboss ticket type) is also available with red leather seats.

And while in a tight 29-inch configuration the seats do recline.

For a small fee, you can select quiet seats up the front or exit rows. Also, windows and aisle seats attract a small premium.

Blankets, pillows, gifts, and gimmicks can be purchased on board.

And, unlike some low-cost airlines, the cabin crew take safety seriously focusing on seat belts and exits being kept clear.

The airline serves 65 destinations in Vietnam and international locations.

It has 60 Airbus A320 and A321 family aircraft in service with another 125 on backlog orders plus 200 737 MAXs
