VietJet Will Fly to Hong Kong in December

Beginning in December, VietJet will offer direct flights between Saigon and Hong Kong.

According to a press release on the budget airline’s website, daily flights between Hong Kong and the southern hub will begin on December 9. During an official visit to Hong Kong, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc was on hand for VietJet’s announcement, along with the airline’s CEO, Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, according to VN Economic Times.

“Asia is poised to be the biggest aviation market in the world, and more than 50% of the world’s population lives within a radius of 2,500 miles from VietJet’s current bases,” Thao said at the event, according to Aviation Tribune. “VietJet is well-positioned to serve quality and creative aviation services across our primary international network while also connecting key regional destinations with each other, including Hong Kong.”

Tickets for the new route are now available on the carrier’s website.
