Vietjet Air has announced the opening of a new international route connecting Ho Chi Minh City and the Indonesian capital of Jakarta.

The announcement ceremony was attended by dignitaries from Vietnam and Indonesia on August 22 in Jakarta, during the official visit by Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong, General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam, to Indonesia. The new route will meet increasing demand for travel between the two countries and boost regional trade and integration.

“Since its inception, Vietjet has been developing friendly and professional flight services in operating key international routes, helping connect Vietnam’s main business and tourism hubs with foreign destinations, including Jakarta,” said Mr. Dinh Viet Phuong, Vietjet’s Vice President. “With its mission of making air travel approachable and possible for everyone and building a future in the air, this new route will boost ties between the two economic, cultural, and financial hubs, thus helping to boost regional trade and integration.”

The three-hour journey will be conducted daily from December 20. Flights leave Ho Chi Minh City at 8.40pm and arrive in Jakarta at 11.40pm, with the return leg leaving Jakarta at 1.40am and landing in Ho Chi Minh City at 4.40am.

Jakarta is famous for its distinctive multicultural style, amazing cuisine, and colorful tourism sites. It also serves as a gateway to the country, which offers the world “Consistency in Diversity”. The Indonesian archipelago boasts UNESCO-listed world heritages such as Borobudur and Prambanan, Komodo National Park, Ujung Kulon National Park, the Sumatran rainforest and, of course, breathtaking “paradise” islands such as Bali, one of the world’s most incredible beach destinations.

Ho Chi Minh City will open the way for visitors from Indonesia to travel in Vietnam, which also boasts UNESCO-listed world heritages and incredible beaches. As the country’s largest economic, financial, and tourism hub, Ho Chi Minh City is a destination in its own right and one that visitors will find is as sweet and charming as it is dynamic and entertaining.

With its high-quality services, special low-fare tickets, and diverse ticket classes, Vietjet offers passengers enjoyable flights with a dynamic and friendly flight crew, comfy seats, delicious hot meals, special surprises as part of the inflight activities, and amazing ticket fares during its daily “12 pm, It’s time to Vietjet” promotion.
