Budget carriers Vietjet Air and Bamboo Airways announced Friday the resumption of regular commercial flights to Asian destinations on January 1 after a hiatus of nearly two years.
Vietjet Air plans to operate two-way flights from Hanoi, HCMC to Japan’s Tokyo, South Korea’s Seoul, Taiwan’s Taipei, Thailand’s Bangkok and Singapore on the first day of 2022, the carrier said in a press release.
There would be one weekly flight on each of these routes and the frequency would be increased later based on market demand, it said.
Bamboo Airways also said it would operate direct flights connecting Hanoi with Tokyo, Taipei and Seoul from January 1, with the frequency of one weekly flight each.
From January 16, it would operate more direct routes to Hong Kong, Germany and Australia.
There would be seven flights a week from Hanoi, HCMC to Hong Kong and two weekly flights from both cities to Germany’s Frankfurt.
It also plans to fly twice a week from HCMC to Australia’s Melbourne.
Bamboo Airways will operate charter or regular flights from Hanoi and HCMC to London in January if it receives due approval from the government, the carrier said.
The nine destinations are: Bangkok (Thailand), Beijing/Guangzhou (China), Phnom Penh (Cambodia), San Francisco or Los Angeles (the U.S.), Seoul (South Korea), Singapore, Taipei (Taiwan), Tokyo (Japan), and Vientiane (Laos).
In the second phase starting Jan. 16, flights would be added on routes connecting Vietnam with Frankfurt (Germany), Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Moscow (Russia), Paris (France) and Sydney (Australia).
Vietnam Airlines has also announced plans to fly to these 15 destinations in January.
Vietnam had closed its borders and grounded international flights in March 2020, allowing in only citizens, foreign experts, investors, and highly-skilled workers coming in on special flights.
