The new routes of Da Nang - New Delhi, Hanoi/HCMC - Mumbai to commence operations in May.

To meet increasing demand, Vietjet has opened three new direct routes connecting Vietnam's three largest hubs, Da Nang, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City with New Delhi and Mumbai in India.

The Da Nang – New Delhi and Hanoi – Mumbai routes will commence operations on May 14, 2020, with a frequency of five flights per week and three flights per week respectively. The Ho Chi Minh City – Mumbai routes will operate four weekly flights from May 15, 2020.

"We are excited to continue connecting Vietnam destinations to the market of over 1.2 billion population in India after receiving positive feedback regarding our previous two direct flights that linked both Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi with New Delhi," said Vietjet Vice President Nguyen Thanh Son.

"With just over five hours of flight time per leg, and a convenient flight schedule throughout the week, Vietjet's newest routes between Vietnam and India will create many more trade and tourism opportunities between the two countries, helping to boost the economies of both. The expansion of Vietjet's flight network into India also reaffirms the airline's ongoing commitment to help flyers save on cost and time continuously. Passengers can enjoy flying on our new and modern aircraft and taking transit flights to famous destinations across Southeast Asia, including Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and many other countries, thanks to Vietjet's extensive flight network in the Asia Pacific region", he added.

With all three routes launching operations in May 2020, Vietjet will become the operator with the most direct routes between the two countries, offering five direct connections. The airline currently operates the HCMC/Hanoi – New Delhi services at a frequency of four weekly flights and three weekly flights respectively.
