Vietjet Air will be the first carrier to operate direct services between Da Lat and the Thai capital of Bangkok.

Commencing on December 18, the new service will be operated on Airbus A320 aircraft with four return flights a week, on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

With a flight time of one and 45 minutes, flights depart Bangkok at 10.30am and return from Da Lat at 12.55am. One-way tickets start from only VND68,000 ($3) (excluding taxes and charges) and are now available at www.vietjetair.com.

Ms. Nguyen Thi Thuy Binh, Vice President of Vietjet Air, said that to further contribute to tourism growth in Vietnam and Thailand, Vietjet is pleased to announce the new international route from the central highlands city of Da Lat to Bangkok. “The new service will be launched just before the Da Lat Flower Festival and I am delighted that people from the two countries can now travel conveniently to enjoy the scenery in the neighboring country through our expanding flight network,” she added.

Da Lat is the capital of Lam Dong province in the central highlands and is 500 meters above sea level. Boasting thick pine forests and verdant valleys of postcard beauty as well charming old French villas, beautiful waterfalls, and gorgeous lakes, the city has become one of the most popular destinations in Vietnam and the region.

Following the newly-launched service between Da Lat and Bangkok, Vietjet and Thai Vietjet will operate a total of six direct routes between Thailand and Vietnam: Bangkok to Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Hai Phong, and Da Lat, and Ho Chi Minh City to Phuket and Chiang Mai.

Vietjet boasts a fleet of 45 aircraft, including A320s and A321s, and operates 350 flights each day. It has already opened 73 routes in Vietnam and across the region to international destinations such as Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Mainland China, Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar, and Cambodia.

Looking ahead, the airline plans to expand its network across the Asia Pacific region. To prepare for this plan, it has signed agreements with leading manufacturers to purchase brand-new aircraft.
