HCM CITY (Biz Hub) — Late last week, in recognition of the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries, Vietjet opened its newest international route, connecting HCM City with Yangon, Myanmar.

With convenient flight schedules, high quality services and accessible fares, the route is expected to meet the travel demands of the two nations' peoples and contribute to economic and cultural exchanges and the global integration of each country, said Vietjet officials.

The new route will include five round trip flights per week, operating on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. The time per flight is approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes.

Flights depart HCM City at 10:25 and arrive in Yangon at 12:10 (local time). Return flights take off from Yangon at 13:00 (local time) and land in HCM City at 15:45.

Sharing similarities in economic development and culture, Myanmar and Viet Nam have recently become a popular destination for international investment in the region, the airline said.

The two economies have also witnessed impressive economic growth. For these reasons, Vietjet sees Yangon as an important destination in the airline's plan to expand its international network, it noted.

Operating a fleet of new A320s and A321s, Vietjet promises to offer passengers economical flying opportunities with high quality services provided by Vietjet's friendly and professional flight staff. — VNS
