To celebrate the 17-route milestone, the airline also launches a special promotion offering 18,688 super low-fare tickets starting INR 9 from July 19 to 21, 2022 on The applicable travel period is from August 15, 2022, to March 26, 2023 , applied to all routes between the two countries.

The announcement comes on the heels of the airline’s recent launch of direct routes connecting New Delhi, Mumbai to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City and its soon-to-launch routes linking Mumbai and New Delhi with Phu Quoc islands, Southeast Asia’s favored beach destination in early September.

The new direct flights will make it easier and more affordable for Indian travelers to visit not only Vietnam but also connect to other Southeast Asian destinations such as Bali, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, and Singapore or further to Northeast Asian cities of Seoul, Busan, Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, Nagoya and Taipei, etc.

Commenting on the expansion of the international flight network, Jay L Lingeswara, Vietjet Commercial Director, said, “As the world reopens to travel and feedbacks on our current India-Vietnam routes are excellent, we now prioritize to expand and increase flight operations to India. Vietnam is poised to be an ideal destination for the Indian travelers recently considering the country’s own tourist attractions while also being a bridge to South, East and North Asian destinations and truly the perfect package for all world travelers.”

“With the expansion of Vietjet’s flight network from all major cities in India to Vietnam and Southeast Asia, Vietjet is now offering more flexibility, seamless connectivity to help travelers realize their dream trips and experiences at the most affordable prices.
