VietJet, the Vietnamese low-cost airline which swung to fame for having bikini-clad models dance inside their planes, has announced that they will be starting non-stop flights between India and Vietnam later this year. VietJet Delhi – Ho Chi Minh City flights are slated to launch in July 2018.
The airline has announced plans to connect Delhi and Ho Chi Minh City with 4 flights per week, making it the only non-stop flight between the two cities. Jet Airways had launched some flights to Vietnam in 2014, however, those were pulled after a year and a half.
Vietjet operates a fleet of 54 aircraft, exclusively Airbus A320 family so far, including A320, A321 and one Airbus A321neo.
I’d clearly be averse to Vietjet pulling one of their entertainment tricks on this flight, given the nature of some Indian fellows to misbehave on flights. But overall, a great news for low-cost aviation enthusiasts.
