The “Korea Prestige Brand Awards” were hosted by the Korea Economic Daily newspaper with the sponsorship of the Korean Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy and the Korea Brand Management Association.
Established in 2004, the awards are held annually to honour brands that are trusted and favoured by Korean customers via public survey.
According to the organisers, Vietjet was selected because of its reasonable prices and excellent service, providing more chances for Korean people to go abroad.
Vietjet operates eight routes between Vietnam and the RoK. It will launch its ninth route connecting Nha Trang with Busan in July this year.
“With a desire to bring an exciting flight experience to Korean customers, our flight crew has many Korean pilots and flight attendants who are friendly and ready to assist local passengers,” Vietjet Deputy Director of Commercial Strategy and Planning Jay L Lingeswara said.
The modern Airbus fleet, flexible, reasonable fares and quality in-flight services have also helped Vietjet be well received in the Korean market, he said.
