VietJetAir unveils sixth aircraft

VietJetAir added (14-Jan-2013) one more aircraft to its expanding fleet of A320s just under a month before the airline embarks on its first international service from Ho Chi Minh City and Bangkok. The LCC, which now has a fleet of six aircraft and operates to nine destinations in Vietnam, plans to add more domestic routes and international connections added in 2013. The new aircraft will help meet increasing travel demand during the Lunar New Year holidays before facilitating VietJetAir’s international expansion. “We plan to have up to 15 aircraft by 2015 with three to five aircraft to arrive this year. We are confident there is plenty of room for growth with our business model of high quality flights and low-cost fares,” said VietJetAir business development director Desmond Lin. VietJetAir’s domestic network currently links Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Dalat, Danang, Phu Quoc, Hue, Nha Trang, Vinh, and Hai Phong. The airline will launch its first international route between Ho Chi Minh City and Bangkok on 10-Feb-2013. The airline also plans to launch a flight connecting Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi to other Southeast and Northeast Asian countries before the end of 2013. [more - original PR]
