Vietjet Air officially launched flights connecting Hanoi and Tokyo on January 11 to continue the cheerful New Year’s celebrations.

This is the airline’s third route between Vietnam and Japan and not only meets increased demand for air travel but also contributes to the development of tourism, trade, and cultural exchange between the two countries.

The Hanoi - Tokyo service is daily with a flight time of around six hours per leg on new and modern aircraft. Passengers can now book tickets via www.vietjetair.com.

Mr. Do Xuan Quang, Vice President of Vietjet Air, said the launch of the new route provides a new travel option for people and travelers from Tokyo and the Kanto region in general to Hanoi, from where they have easy access to many more famous destinations in Vietnam such as Sapa, Ha Long Bay, Trang An, and Son Doong Cave. “The two countries’ people and international tourists can also effortlessly transit to other ASEAN countries or destinations across the North Asia region with Vietjet’s comprehensive and constantly expanding flight network,” he added. “I believe that with outstanding service quality, a new fleet, dedicated and friendly cabin crews, delicious and hot in-flight meals, and amazing ticket fares and exciting in-flight entertainment, Vietjet will give its passengers a wonderful flying experience.”

Vietjet has already introduced two direct routes to Japan: Hanoi - Osaka on November 8 and Ho Chi Minh City - Osaka on December 14.

On the Hanoi - Osaka route, Vietjet and Japan Airlines have cooperated to offer a code-share service, which also applies to Vietjet’s domestic routes, including Hanoi - Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi - Da Nang, and Ho Chi Minh City - Da Nang.

To celebrate the opening of the Hanoi - Tokyo route, Vietjet is offering 1 million super-saving tickets priced from $0 all day long on January 9, 10 and 11.

The promotional tickets are available on all routes connecting Vietnam and Japan, including Hanoi - Osaka (Kansai), Ho Chi Minh City - Osaka (Kansai), and Hanoi - Tokyo. The flight period for all promotional tickets is from February 14 to December 31.
