HCM CITY – Vietjet has announced the launch of its latest domestic routes connecting the Central Highlands city of Pleiku with Ha Noi and HCM City.

The two new routes will debut on October 1.

The flying time between Ha Noi and Pleiku is approximately one hour and 35 minutes, while it is only one hour between HCM City and Pleiku. Flights from Ha Noi will depart at 2.55pm and arrive at Pleiku at 4.30pm. Return flights will depart Pleiku at 5.10pm and arrive in Ha Noi at 6.45pm.

Flights from HCM City will depart at 4.35pm and arrive in Pleiku at 5.35pm. The return flight will depart Pleiku at 6.10pm and arrive in HCM City at 7.10pm.

"The new routes are expected to boost travel between this city in the Central Highlands and Viet Nam's two most dynamic and developed cities as well as neighboring regions," Vietjet's business development director Desmond Lin said.

Special ‘early bird' promotion for forthcoming Tet holidays

In addition to the new routes, the airline has launched a massive promotional campaign on all domestic and international routes from Viet Nam to Thailand, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea and Myanmar to meet the surge in demand for air travel before, during and after Tet in early 2016.

"With this campaign, Vietjet offers a wide range of low-cost fares so the sooner our customers buy a ticket, the cheaper price they will get. Moreover, early booking can ensure passengers don't miss out altogether as all flights during the Tet period will be sold out," Lin said.

Furthermore, the airline will increase the frequency of high-demand routes, such as HCM City – Ha Noi (with more than 20 round trips per day for the holiday period), HCM City – Da Nang (10 round trips per day), HCM City – Hue (four round trips), HCM City - Vinh (four round trips) and HCM City – Hai Phong (six round trips).

This increase in services aims to facilitate passengers' travel plans for tourism, business and/or family reunions during what is considered peak season for air travel in Viet Nam, the carrier said. — VNS
