The recognitiion highlighted Thai Vietjet’s achievements in fleet and new destination growth. Starting operations for both international and domestic services in late 2016 with only three aircraft, the carrier has obtained triple-digit growth since then with 13 aircraft, together with 14 Thai domestic destinations and 17 other international routes operated to Viet Nam, Taiwan, and mainland China.

With seven new routes recently announced in 2020, Thai Vietjet - a joint venture between Vietjet and Thai airline Kan Air - plans to carry more than three million passengers this year with a fleet of 15 aircraft.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has caused great damage to the global economy and tourism in general, leaving the aviation industry with a lot of challenges, Nguyen Thi Thuy Binh, Chairwoman of Thai Vietjet said.

"With our efforts and better defining our mission in the economy and the tourism industry, we have urgently changed our development strategies to help keep travel and tourism active following good disease prevention and control,"
