Today, at Tan Son Nhat Airport (Ho Chi Minh City), Vietjet held a jubilant inaugural ceremony to celebrate the debut of the airline’s Ho Chi Minh City – Phuket (Thailand) route. On the inaugural flight, passengers were thrilled to receive lovely, surprise gifts from Vietjet.

Prior to that, Vietjet also welcomed the first flight of the Ho Chi Minh City – Chiang Mai (Thailand) route, which arrived to great excitement of both passengers and onlookers. Both these new routes serve the transportation and travel demands of locals and tourists while contributing to the promotion of trading and integration in the region. With the two new routes, Vietjet now operates six flights to “the Land of Smiles” from Vietnam.

The ceremony was witnessed by Mr. Manopchai Vongphakdi – Ambassador of the Kingdom of Thailand to Vietnam, leader of Aviation Administration of Vietnam, Culture, Sport and Tourism Department of Ho Chi Minh City and leaders of industries of Vietnam and Thailand.

The Ho Chi Minh City – Phuket route operates a return flight every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday involving about two hours per leg. Flights depart Ho Chi Minh City at 10.15 am and arrive in Phuket at 12.10 pm. Return flights take off at 1.05 pm from Phuket and land in Ho Chi Minh City at 3.10 pm.

The Ho Chi Minh City – Chiang Mai route operates a return flight every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday with a flight time of just under two hours per leg. Flights depart Ho Chi Minh City at 11.35 am and arrive in Chiang Mai at 1.30 pm. Return flights take off at 2.20 pm from Chiang Mai and land in Ho Chi Minh City at 4.25 pm.
