Vietjet has announced it would give part of sales revenue to support those in difficulties in the country's central region, where people are suffering heavy losses from consecutive storms and floods.

For each ticket sold from now until November 21, the airline will donate VND10,000 (US$0.4) to support people in the central region.

The donation money will be transferred by Vietjet to authorities and charity funds to buy essentials as well as to support people in flood-affected areas to restore their lives and overcome the hardships, Vietjet said in a statement.

From October 19, Vietjet has been providing free transportation and priority for relief goods on the earliest flights which depart from HCM City and Ha Noi to airports in Chu Lai in Quang Nam Province, Da Nang City, Phu Bai in Thua Thien-Hue, Dong Hoi in Quang Binh and Vinh in Nghe An.

The airline also gives free air tickets to officials of the Vietnamese Fatherland Front and People's Committees of provinces and cities who have duties in the central region during this period.

Vietjet has launched a programme called "Spreading love with Vietjet to flood victims in Central Viet Nam", urging all staff to donate directly at all offices in Viet Nam and abroad. The donations are handed over to the people of the Central region by a Vietjet specialised delegation. — VNS
