(Hanoi & Ho Chi Minh City, December 2, 2011) – VietJet Aviation Joint Stock Company today launches national commercial activities and introduces itself to the public as a low-cost carrier (LCC). A launch ceremony held in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, which marks VietJetAir’s official entry into the Vietnam aviation market, was attended many distinguished guests, municipal authorities, leaders of the Civil Aviation Administration of Vietnam, partners, and clients.
With the slogan “Save more, fly more”, VietJetAir aims to develop the Vietnam aviation market and make air transport accessible to all Vietnamese and foreign tourists through affordably-priced, high-quality, and safe aviation services and products.
The national commercial launch also marks the opening of VietJetAir’s booking offices and travel agents for selling tickets nationwide. The budget carrier’s website www.vietjetair.com
and CallCenter 19001886 are also launched on the occasion to offer a comprehensive ticket-booking network to clients.
Besides 120 authorized collection points located at HDbank’s transaction network, VietJetAir will introduce more collection points at local and international banks as well as provide payment services via ATM networks and internet banking in the near future.
The low-cost model has recently become popular with many airlines around the world. As one of the pioneers of this model in Vietnam, VietJetAir targets to bring flying experiences to all Vietnamese, even low-income earners, thanks to affordable and flexibly priced tickets.
VietJetAir Deputy General Director Nguyen Duc Tam says: “As a low-cost carrier, VietJetAir will operate new Airbus A320 aircraft to save energy and reduce operation and maintenance costs. We will also maximize the aircraft’s usage efficiency by putting all 180 seats into operation. Especially, passengers on our first Airbus A320 flights will have the chance to experience new leather-covered seats, which are expected to help them enjoy their time aboard VietJetAir.”
The operation of new and renowned aircraft will be the key to VietJetAir’s future success as they will minimize technical problems that can cause unexpected flight delays, according to Mr Tam.
Initially, VietJetAir will operate 4 flights between Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi per day. The number will be increased to 14 in early 2012.
VietJetAir is the first private carrier in Vietnam licensed to fly domestic and international routes. It operates as a low-cost carrier with new Airbus A320 aircraft and professional and friendly crews. The company’s motto is to provide Vietnamese and tourists to Vietnam flexibly-priced and affordable air tickets, thus stimulating the development of business, travel, and investment in the country. VietJetAir will begin Ho Chi Minh City-Danang flights in early 2012 with flights to other destinations in Vietnam and Southeast Asia to be launched in the middle of 2012.
