Vietjet poised for boom 2024 following strong Q3 financial reports
Edited by Travel Weekly

    Vietjet has reported strong financial growth in the first three quarters of 2023 and has announced plans to continue to expand its international flight network.

    In Q3/2023, Vietjet safely operated 36,000 flights and transported 6.8 million passengers including
    2.3 million international travellers – an increase of 10 per cent over the third quarter of the pre-pandemic 2019 and up to 127 per cent year on year.

    During the first nine months of 2023, Vietnam welcomed 23.7 million international passengers
    through its airports, skyrocketing by 267 per cent year on year.

    Vietjet has been an important addition to the Australian market, contributing to bilateral tourism development, trade and investment as well as supporting economic recovery.

    In Q3/2023, Vietjet opened seven new international routes, bringing the total number of routes to 125 (45 domestic and 80 international routes) and is the first airline to have flights connecting Vietnam with the five largest cities in Australia, including Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney.

    The airline has also received numerous international and domestic awards, including ‘Asia’s Leading Airline for Customer Experience’ by the World Travel Awards, and ‘Top 100 Most Valuable Brands in Vietnam’.

    Another key distinction was ranking in the ‘Top 10 Strong Brands for Sustainable Development 2023’, highlighting the carrier’s commitment to ‘green travel’.

    While still committing to its mission of realizing the “flying dream” for millions of Vietnamese and international travellers, Vietjet has been all in for environmental and community responsibilities in each locality where it operates. In October 2023, Vietjet launched the Fly Green fundraising program with the meaningful message of “Every red ticket for one green planet”.
