From January 2022, Vietjet has resumed regular international flights from Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City to Tokyo Narita International Airport, Seoul, Taipei, Singapore and Bangkok. 

At present, each service is operating one round trip per week. Any increase in flight frequency will be subject to travel demand and the government’s approval to ensure safe operations and effective disease prevention.

Flight schedules are available on Vietjet’s website, official mobile app and Facebook page, and at booking offices and official agencies.

Vietjet also welcomed its first wide-body Airbus A330 aircraft as part of its 10th anniversary of its first flight on Christmas Day.

The A330 will cover medium- and long-distance trips, in line with Vietjet’s plans to expand its global flight network and deliver better customer experience.

Starting July 2022, the airline also plans to add three new routes from Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh City and Nha Trang to Moscow, Russia on A330-300 aircrafts, connecting Vietjet to the European market.

The Hanoi-Moscow route will operate two weekly flights on Wednesday and Sunday from July 3, while the Ho Chi Minh City-Moscow route starts on the same day and will transit through Hanoi.

Meanwhile, the Nha Trang-Moscow route will start from July 10 with two weekly flights every Monday and Friday.

Vietjet Managing Director Dinh Viet Phuong said: “Vietjet is ready to relaunch international services. We have invested in a modern fleet, and we will expand our intercontinental flight network in the coming time.”

While Vietnam has approved the resumption of international flights with nine destinations from January 1, 2022, only five international routes have been confirmed so far. They are US, Japan, Taiwan, Cambodia, and Singapore.
