Vietjet Air expands its presence

The low-cost carrier Vietjet Air has created flying opportunities for millions of residents, over 30% of which chose Vietjet Air for their first flight experience, said Vietjet Managing Director Luu Duc Khanh at the 2014 review conference held in Ho Chi Minh City on January 25.

He added that in 2015, Vietjet Air looks to foster sustainable development in the domestic market and conduct efficient joint ventures overseas. 

Speaking at the event, Deputy Minister of Transport Nguyen Van The said VietJet’s development manifested the fact that Vietnamese aviation is an open market and Vietnamese investors are also reaching outside the country to popularise the nation’s image in foreign markets.

In 2014, 5.6 million passengers travelled with Vietjet Air, generating total revenue of VND8.1 trillion (US$380 million). 

Vietjet Air is currently operating 150 flights per day with 28 air routes, covering domestic destinations as well as a number of international flights to Singapore, Thailand, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan, and Cambodia.

In a bid to increase its domestic and international presence, VietJet Air plans to add 100 new aircraft to its fleet.
