BEIJING (Biz Hub) — VietJet unveiled plans to launch direct flights connecting Viet Nam with China on April 10 in Beijing, China.

This announcement was made during the official visit to China by Vietnamese Secretary General Nguyen Phu Trong, who was invited by Chinese President Xi Jinping on the occasion of the 65th anniversary celebrations of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

VietJet said it would expand its flight network from Viet Nam to other provinces in China. The airline has a development plan, and has asked the permission of the transport ministries of both countries for launching a series of maiden flights to China, connecting cities such as Nha Trang and Da Nang in Viet Nam and Hangzhou and Kunming in China.

"The demand for travel for business, family visits and reunions between Viet Nam and China is growing all the time. To satisfy that need of the passengers, VietJet is ready to provide quality aviation services on key international routes," VietJet Business Development Director Desmond Lind said.

VietJet has reportedly become one of the most popular airlines in Viet Nam and the Asia-Pacific region. The airline is committed to offering the best quality services and unbeatable fares, so that travellers can enjoy more flying opportunities in the domestic and international sectors. — VNS
