Tokyo, Japan – As part of Vietnam Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s official visit to Japan, Vietjet held a special ceremony today to announce the addition of three new routes linking Vietnam with Japan.

Soon to be launched in the coming three months, the Osaka – Hanoi route will commence operations on 8 November 2018, the Osaka – Ho Chi Minh City route on 14 December 2018, and the Tokyo – Hanoi route on 11 January 2019. Each of these routes will be operated with a daily return flight.

Witnessed by the Vietnam Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and several high-ranking Japanese and Vietnamese dignitaries, the announcement of these new route additions will contribute to the growth of tourism and trade.

Addressing the audience at the event, Vietnam's Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said, “The launch of Vietjet’s routes from Vietnam to the Kansai region of Japan on this occasion has great significance in sharing the cause to rebuild Kansai’s economy and tourism after being devastated by the storm in early September, and contributes to tourism, trade and integration development between the two countries and in the region.”

Also speaking at the event, Mr. Hiroshi Tabata, Commissioner of Japan Tourism Agency said, “It is our great pleasure to welcome and give full support to the successful launch and operation of Vietjet’s flights to Kansai International Airport in Osaka. These newly launched flights to Kansai International Airport will be a huge boost for tourism in the Kansai area and thereby contribute to the recovery of the local economy which has been left reeling from the damage caused by typhoon Jebi. I believe that these new routes will also contribute to an increase in the number of Vietnamese visitors coming to Japan.”

He also expressed his belief that Vietjet’s flights to Japan will bring new travel experiences and choices for passengers from Vietnam and Japan, thus contributing to the development of comprehensive economic and cultural ties between the two countries.

Vietjet has already worked with Japanese partners to organize several flights from Vietnam to airports in Osaka, Narita, Sendai, Nagoya, Komatsu, Ibaraki and Fukushima. These flights were very well received by Japanese passengers.

All across Asia, Vietjet has become a leading airline thanks to its innovative, friendly and diverse services as well as its impressive fleet of new and modern aircraft. To celebrate the carrier’s arrival in the Land of the Rising Sun, Vietjet will run amazing promotional programs and hold a range of exciting entertainment activities.

In addition to the airline’s high-quality services, diverse ticket classes, and affordable tickets, Vietjet also brings its passengers memorable flying experiences on new aircraft with comfy seats, delicious hot meals served by beautiful and friendly cabin crew, and many other attractive added-on services.
