Vietjet boosts its Australian presence

Bamboo Airlines may have suddenly exited the local market, but Vietjet Air is making it easier than ever for Australians to fly to the increasingly popular destination of Vietnam for a holiday.

Vietjet is now flying from both Adelaide and Perth to Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, the first Vietnamese carrier to link to South Australia and Western Australia.

The expansion comes under a year after Vietjet made its debut in Australian skies.

During that period Vietjet has doubled its weekly flights to Australia, offering 58 weekly flights starting from December.

South Australian Tourism Minister Zoe Bettison said: “Vietjet’s Adelaide route opens up significant avenues for tourism and trade, strengthening our ties with one of the fastest-growing economies in Asia.”

VietJet Air is a Vietnamese low-cost airline based in Hanoi.

It was the first privately-owned airline to be established in Vietnam, being granted its initial approval to operate in November 2007. 

It launched in 2011 and has enjoyed rapid growth.

Currently, Vietjet operates around 400 flights daily covering destinations across Vietnam and international ports in Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, mainland China, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia and Cambodia.
