Vietjet on Monday inaugurated its newest route connecting Bangkok in Thailand with Da Lat city in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong.

The event was witnessed by representatives from the ministries of culture, sport and tourism and transport, the Aviation Administration, provincial authorities and other Thai and Vietnamese agencies.

In her speech at the ceremony, Vietjet vice president Nguyen Thi Thuy Binh said the new route is part of the airline’s efforts to enhance bilateral ties between Viet Nam and Thailand in trade, investment, aviation transport and tourism.

The Bangkok-Da Lat route operates a return flight every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday with a flight time of approximately one hour and 45 minutes per leg. Flights depart Da Lat at 12.55pm and land in Bangkok at 2.40pm. Return flights take off from Bangkok at 10.30am and arrive in Da Lat at 12.15pm.

Vietjet is also the first airline to operate a Bangkok - Da Lat route following its launch of two new routes from HCM City to Chiang Mai and Phuket last week. That increases Vietjet’s total routes from Viet Nam to Thailand to six.

Recently, Thai Vietjet, a joint venture between Vietjet Group and Thailand Kan Air, unveiled a new aircraft emblazoned with the logo ‘Amazing Thailand Tourism Year 2018’.

Thai Vietjet has also received its Air Operator Certificate recertification in line with International Civil Aviation Organization standards from the Civil Aviation Authority of Thailand. — VNS
