Come December 9, Vietnamese low-cost airline Vietjet will begin operating its new international service between Hong Kong and Ho Chi Minh City, increasing the airline’s total number of routes between Vietnam and China, and marking the airline’s first frequent service to Hong Kong. With a flight duration of 2 hours and 45 minutes, the new service will run every day, departing Hong Kong International Airport at 7:20 p.m., with an estimated arrival time of 9:05 p.m. The return flight will then leave Ho Chi Minh City at 2:35 p.m. and arrive in Hong Kong at 6:20 p.m. “At Vietjet, our mission is to make air travel accessible to everyone and a more popular means of transportation. We believe that our new Ho Chi Minh City—Hong Kong route will better connect these two dynamic financial hubs and tourism destinations. In doing so, Vietjet is proud to play its part in boosting integration, tourism and trade development across the globe and become one of the world’s favorite airlines,” stated Vietjet’s President & CEO Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao at the announcement ceremony last week in Hong Kong, which was attended by Vietnam’s prime minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Hong Kong SAR’s chief secretary for administration Carrie Lam, and other high-ranking officials and leaders from the two countries. Tickets for Vietjet’s new service are now available for purchase on the airline’s website.
