VietJet has announced that the airline carried three million passengers in the first seven months of 2014, a 182% increase in capacity year-on-year. The figures were released at a preliminary business review held at Ho Chi Minh City’s Opera House today.

The airline, which recently expanded its fleet and now features 15 Airbus A320 aircraft, has now carried 7.4 million customers, since December 2011, on a total of over 18,500 safe flights. VietJet also scored an impressive 99.39% in a technical reliability evaluation of the last 12 months (statistics 31 July, 2014).

Certificate of Merit to VietJet Training Center by the Ministry of Transport of Vietnam

With an expanded network of 27 domestic and international routes, the airline generated VND3.818 trillion in revenue in the last seven months, adding VND349 billion in tax to the State treasury bringing its total in taxed revenue to VND1.51 trillion.

The airline’s board has also implemented enhanced training programs. During the first seven months of 2014, 1,708 students graduated from 132 training courses. VietJet’s training center also earned a Certificate of Merit from the Ministry of Transport of Vietnam.

Now Vietnam’s fastest growing airline, VietJet has introduced several far-reaching community initiatives in recent times. The airline provided health insurance to the needy and also collaborated with Pepsi to offer free air tickets to Vietnamese students so they can fly home and enjoy Lunar New Year at home. The airline also assisted students coming to Ho Chi Minh City for university entrance exam in a special programme that provided maps, directions to accommodation and vouchers for free food as well as sponsoring local and international events.

Congratulations on achivement highlights for the first seven months

Speaking at the preliminary business review, Mr. Nguyen Van The, the Deputy Minister of Transport of Vietnam, congratulated VietJet for its achievements not just in the first seven months of 2014 but since its first flight took off in late-2011 helping Vietnam to “open up its skyline.”

The Deputy Minister said that response to calls from the Communist Party’s Politburo and the Prime Minister to promote “budget airlines”, the Minister of Transport, Mr. Dinh La Thang has requested to take advantage of low cost carriers to save costs on business trips of governmental officials.

Constantly trying to raise the bar for customer service, VietJet has been proud to receive an “Excellent Emulation Flag of the Government” by the Ministry of Transportation and a number of other awards such as one of Top Ten Travel Transportation Companies and Top Vietnam Service Products. VietJet also declared a “Sustainable Development Enterprise” by UNESCO Vietnam and set a new world record for “most smiles on a flight to Singapore” when launching a new route connecting Ho Chi Minh City and the island state in March.

Having completed its goals for the first seven months of 2014, VietJet will now continue to further enhance its services. The airline is determined to ensure its OTP (On Time Performance) is on a par with the best airlines in the region and increase its OTP ratings by up to 5-10% before the end of the year. To facilitate this, VietJet has called for further support from airports, flight operation suppliers, ground handling companies and catering services.

Besides, VietJet has also aligned with the industry program “4 PLEASEs – 4 ALWAYSs”  and continued its internal competition “4 your smile” with the desire VietJeters always smile at work then inspire customers to enjoy flyling with VietJet with greater and greater flying experience.

In the meantime, VietJet will do its best to ensure all passengers “Enjoy Flying”. The airline has an ongoing program that encourages its cabin crew to constantly greet each and every passenger with a smile.

Since its inception, the airline has constantly implemented innovative services such as self-check in kiosks so passengers can also enjoy a fast, convenient and comfortable trip. VietJet staff will also assist elderly passengers, parents travelling with infants or disabled persons to check in quickly at all airports.
