Vietjet Air has officially opened flights connecting the central coastal city of Da Nang with Tokyo’s Haneda International Airport, marking its fifth route between Vietnam and Japan.

Located less than 30 minutes from downtown Tokyo, the airport is highly convenient for businesspeople and leisure travelers flying into the Japanese capital. It is also one of the region’s largest transit hubs between Asian and Western countries, with a significant network of both domestic and international flights.

The Da Nang - Tokyo (Haneda) route will operate daily return services from October 30. With a flight time of approximately five hours and 30 minutes per leg, flights depart Da Nang at 6.10pm and land in Tokyo at 1am. The return flight departs Tokyo at 2.30am and arrives in Da Nang at 6.40am (all local times). In its four other direct flights between Vietnam and Japan, Vietjet has linked Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi to both Tokyo (Narita) and Osaka.

Mr. Nguyen Duc Thinh, Vice President of Vietjet Air, said that the new route will help travelers from Japan easily discover phenomenal destinations in central Vietnam such as Da Nang, the ancient town of Hoi An, the former imperial citadel at Hue, Quang Binh province, and many more wonderful spots in Vietnam and across the Asian region. “In return, travelers and local people in central Vietnam can now fly directly to Japan and other destinations throughout the world via Haneda without having to travel to other big cities as in the past,” he added. “We are proud to provide a new travel option that is affordable, convenient, and suitable for travelers wishing to depart from Haneda Airport, which is close to central Tokyo, and travel to Da Nang - one of the world’s most adored beach cities. Together with our four other routes between the two countries and the expansive domestic and international networks we offer, the new service will further complete Vietjet’s growing connections between Vietnam and Japan.”

Tickets for the new route are available on all channels, including the website www.vietjetair.com, the Vietjet Air mobile app, or via www.facebook.com/vietjetvietnam (just click the “Booking” tab). Payments can be easily made with Vietjet Sky Club, by international debit and credit cards including Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, JCB, KCP, and Union, or with any ATM card issued by 34 Vietnamese banks that have registered for internet banking.

Vietjet Air currently operates around 400 flights daily, carrying more than 80 million passengers to date on 129 routes covering destinations across Vietnam and internationally such as Japan, Hong Kong (China), Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan (China), China, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, and Cambodia.
