VietJetAir Best Ultra Low-Cost Award Winner For 2018
VietjetAir.com, the inaugural winner of the Airlineratings.com Best Ultra Low-Cost Airline 2018 is bringing back the romance of travel but at bargain 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 affordable travel to all including those that perhaps couldn’t afford air travel before.
The airline to date has flown over 40 million passengers, and been awarded 32 domestic and nine international accolades such as being named “The Best Asian Low-Cost Carrier 2015” at the TTG Travel Awards 2015.
Vietjet 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 38 destinations in Vietnam and 35 international locations.
It has 45 Airbus A320 and A321 family aircraft in service with another 90 on order including 73neos.
In 2016 it ordered 100 Boeing 737 MAX200 jets for delivery from 2019.
