India is one of our priority markets and an important addition to our growing network. In line with our commitment to offer Indian travellers a seamless travel experience with great comfort, we are elated to introduce our world-class offerings and winning hospitality onboard with advanced technology and modern aircrafts.”
The direct flights from New Delhi to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi by Vietjet will further propel trade and tourism opportunities in both the countries. Moreover, the new routes will connect India to Vietjet’s expansive flight network across Southeast Asia and East Asia countries including Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea, Japan and China, among others.
As the first airline in Vietnam to operate as a new-age airline, Vietjet brings exciting flying opportunities by offering flexible, cost-saving ticket fares and diversified services to its customers. Flying under the banner of “safety, happiness, affordability and punctuality” as its core values, Vietjet creates memorable flying experiences for its passengers with its new aircrafts, comfortable seats, courteous staff and crew, and a specially crafted menu with a choice of nine delectable meals. The airline also provides customers with beneficial add-on services not only during the flight but also before and after each flight.
Vietnam boasts of lush mountains, bustling cities and golden sand beaches along with various UNESCO-listed world heritage sites, providing an enthralling experience to Indian travellers. Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam, is a buzzing hub of culture, history and tantalizing cuisine. On the other hand, Ho Chi Minh City is a high-octane city of commerce and culture offering the best of both, ranging from towering skyscrapers to tree-lined streets with ageing villa, and Haute cuisine to humble street food.
The new routes give an opportunity to travellers from both the countries to live unforgettable experiences, rich with history and culture, where one can discover hidden treasures, incredible heritage sites, colorful festivals and sacred monuments.
