Vietjet, a Vietnamese low-cost airline based in Hanoi, recently celebrated the delivery of an Airbus A321neo ACF as its 102nd aircraft. The airline’s 5th international route was also launched in just one month of December 2023, connecting Hanoi, the capital city of Vietnam, with Hong Kong, the vibrant metropolis.

This addition aligns with Vietjet’s anniversary celebration on 24 December 2011 and enhances the festive spirit of Christmas. The A321neo ACF aircraft, adorned with the Vietnamese national flag, arrived at Tan Son Nhat International Airport on 22 December 2023. The airline promptly deployed the aircraft to serve passengers on various routes covering Vietnam and international destinations.

According to the company’s press release, as the first airline globally to operate the new A321neo ACF 240-seat since its establishment in 2019, Vietjet pioneers fuel consumption reduction by up to 20%, noise emissions by up to 75%, and environmental emissions by up to 50%.

Emphasizing its fleet and flight network expansion strategy across the Asia Pacific region, Vietjet launched multiple international services including the Shanghai – Ho Chi Minh City, Phu Quoc – Busan, Hanoi – Jakarta, Hanoi – Siem Reap, and the recently launched, Hanoi – Hong Kong route.

The thrice-weekly Hanoi – Hong Kong service, operating every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, increases Vietjet’s Vietnam – Hong Kong flight network to four direct services. From February 2024 onwards, the Ho Chi Minh City – Hong Kong, Da Nang – Hong Kong, and Phu Quoc – Hong Kong routes will increase to see daily services.

To mark the new routes, Vietjet offers passengers the “Real Deal” to Vietnam and beyond with affordable airfares from just SGD80 (USD60) /one-way (including tax and fees) every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at www.vietjetair.com or via the Vietjet Air mobile application. Passengers on Vietjet will also receive complimentary Sky Care travel insurance and the opportunity to accumulate points for reward redemption with the Vietjet SkyJoy loyalty.

With these new routes, travelers from Singapore can now explore Vietnam’s rich culture, local traditions, and exciting cuisine during a stopover in Ho Chi Minh City before embarking on their journey to Hong Kong.
