Etihad has launched services to Ho Chi Minh, becoming only the tenth non-Asian airline serving Vietnam. Abu Dhabi is now one of only seven destinations outside Asia-Pacific that are served non-stop from Vietnam.
Vietnam remains an under-served long-haul market with huge potential. But Gulf carriers have been quick to recognise the opportunities in Vietnam and are now among Vietnam’s largest international carriers.
Etihad follows rival Emirates, which launched services to Ho Chi Minh in Jun-2012. Qatar began serving Ho Chi Minh in 2009 and added Hanoi in late 2010. It is now Vietnam’s third largest foreign carrier.
VietJet is pursuing further network expansion over the next few months as the carrier looks to cement its position as the leading low-cost carrier in the Vietnamese market. VietJet is adding three more domestic routes for a total of 14 and is also preparing to launch services to Seoul, which would be its second international destination after Bangkok.
VietJet overtook Jetstar Pacific as Vietnam’s largest LCC less than one year after its 25-Dec-2011 launch. By its second-year anniversary at the end of 2013 the carrier will account for over 25% of capacity in the domestic market and have a fleet of 10 A320s – on both counts double the size of Jetstar Pacific.
But Jetstar Pacific is finally preparing a response as the Jetstar Group affiliate plans to launch international services by the end of 2013 and pursue domestic expansion. Jetstar Pacific and its majority owner Vietnam Airlines have done little so far to try to combat VietJet’s rapid ascent. If VietJet continues to expand quickly a response is inevitable although VietJet could try to avoid a potential conflict by focusing more on expanding planned joint ventures in other Asian markets.
VietJet Air is planning to add three new domestic and three new international routes in the coming months as Vietnam’s leading low-cost carrier continues to pursue rapid expansion. VietJet has already surpassed rival LCC Jetstar Pacific to become Vietnam’s second largest carrier after Vietnam Airlines with approximately a 15% share of the country’s fast-growing domestic market. The privately-owned carrier will see its share of capacity in Vietnam’s domestic market approach 20% by mid-2013 – an impressive achievement given it only launched services in Dec-2011.
VietJet now operates 10 routes, including one international route, with a fleet of six A320s. It plans to operate by the end of 2013 a fleet of 10 A320s on 16 routes – 12 domestic and four international.
Vietnam’s largest low-cost carrier, VietJet Air, is preparing to quickly expand its international network, taking advantage of growing demand for budget travel to and from Vietnam. The carrier launched its first international route on 10-Feb-2013, Ho Chi Minh-Bangkok, and is looking at several additional potential international destinations in Southeast and North Asia.
Two more international routes as well as additional capacity domestically, where VietJet already has captured a 15% share of the market, are expected in 2013. Vietnam is poised for further LCC domestic and international growth as LCC penetration rates in the country’s domestic and international markets are the lowest among major Southeast Asian countries. VietJet is well positioned, along with a rejuvenated but still very small Jetstar Pacific, to cash in on Vietnam’s LCC boom.
VietJet Air has announced a major network expansion that will make it Vietnam’s largest low-cost carrier, overtaking Jetstar Pacific, by the end of 2012. VietJet is also poised to beat rival Jetstar Pacific in becoming the first Vietnamese LCC to operate international services. VietJet, which will expand its domestic network from five to nine destinations in Nov/Dec-2012, is looking at launching its first international route – possibly Ho Chi Minh-Bangkok – in late 2012 or early 2013.
Jetstar Pacific has been focusing this year on fleet renewal rather than expansion but is planning to resume expansion in 2013, ending a hiatus of four years in which growth was paused due partially to internal uncertainty. The carrier began a more promising new chapter earlier this year after a 70% stake was transferred to Vietnam Airlines, which previously had been looking at launching its own LCC subsidiary (Jetstar owns the remaining 30% stake in Jetstar Pacific). But Jetstar Pacific may struggle to keep up with much newer VietJet, which is likely to continue expanding at a faster pace than Jetstar Pacific.
AirAsia’s decision last week to not go forward with its Vietnamese joint venture is a major setback for the AirAsia Group and Vietnam’s promising aviation market. But by no means does it spell an end or even a delay for AirAsia’s Vietnamese partner, VietJet Air, which is moving forward with plans to launch services in Dec-2011 without AirAsia.
