VietJet Air to operate direct flights to Singapore

Viet Nam’s VietJet Aviation Joint Stock Company (VietJet Air) will open direct flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Singapore on May 23.

VietJet Air announced at a press conference in Singapore on May 8 that the Ho Chi Minh City-Singapore route will initially operate seven round trip flights per week. The number will be raised to 14 in the near future, to meet increasing demand.

At the press conference, VietJet Air Vice President Nguyen Thi Thuy Binh said that this is the airline’s second international air route. The first one flies to Bangkok, Thailand.

She added that VietJet Air plans to operate other direct flights from Hanoi to Incheon (the Republic of Korea) and Siem Riep (Cambodia), and from Ho Chi Minh City to Taiwan and Hong Kong (China) later this year.

According to Luu Duc Khanh, VietJet’s Managing Director, Singapore is a great entry to the Asia Pacific market, especially for tourists to connect to this part of the world.

Therefore, VietJet Air has chosen Singapore as its next destination, he said, adding that it also plans to fly to the US, Australia and some European cities in three to five years.

VietJet Air becomes the seventh airlines operating direct flights between Singapore and Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Danang of Viet Nam, together with Vietnam Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Tiger Airways, Jetstar Asia, Silkair and Lion Air.

According to the Transport Ministry, the Viet Nam-Singapore aviation market in 2013 reached 966,000 passengers, an increase of 1 percent over the previous year.
