Hanoi (VNA) – National Assembly (NA) Chairman Vuong Dinh Hue and Speaker of the Indian Lok Sabha (the lower house) Om Birla attended a ceremony on April 19 in Hanoi to launch Vietjet Air's new direct air routes between Vietnam and India, which marked the return and expansion of its network in the 1.4-billion-strong market.
The four new routes connect Hanoi and Mumbai, Ho Chi Minh City and Mumbai, and the southern resort island of Phu Quoc with New Delhi and Mumbai.
Accordingly, Vietjet Air will operate four round-trip flights each week on the HCM City-Mumbai route from June 2 and three weekly round-trip flights on the Hanoi-Mumbai route from June 3.
Meanwhile, four round-trip flights will be available each week on the Phu Quoc-Mumbai route and three on the Phu Quoc-New Delhi route from September 8 and 9, respectively.
Prior to the pandemic, Vietjet had operated two direct routes linking Vietnam’s capital city of Hanoi and the financial hub of Ho Chi Minh City with India's capital city of New Delhi in addition to charter flights from Vietnam to Bodh Gaya, the Indian Buddhist pilgrimage site. The two existing services between Ho Chi Minh City/Hanoi and New Delhi will soon resume, on April 29 and April 30, respectively, with a frequency of three weekly return flights on each route.
