Vietjet’s two new routes to South Korea and China

Vietjet’s two new routes to South Korea and China
Edited by Travel Weekly

    Vietjet has announced the commencement of two new routes, expanding its network in both South Korea and China. The new routes include Nha Trang-Daegu in South Korea and Ho Chi Minh City-Xi’an in China.

    The new route connecting Vietnam’s coastal city of Nha Trang with Daegu, a major city located in southeastern South Korea, is scheduled to begin on 27 October 2024, with seven round-trip flights per week. Daegu, one of the largest cities in South Korea, offers numerous tourist attractions, while Nha Trang is known globally as the “Pearl of the East Sea,” famous for its pleasant tropical climate, rich culture, and diverse cuisine.

    Vietjet has expanded its flight network over the past decade, celebrating 10 years of connecting Vietnam and South Korea. Since its first flight in July 2014, Vietjet has transported around ten million passengers on over 37 regular and charter services between the two countries, significantly boosting economic, investment, tourism, and cultural exchange relations.

    In addition, Vietjet is finally commencing its new route connecting Ho Chi Minh City to Xi’an, the capital of Shaanxi province in China on 1 July 2024. The route operates four round-trip flights weekly and aims to foster deeper cultural and economic ties between the two cities and neighbouring countries, bolstering regional connectivity with Vietjet’s flight network. Xi’an is known for its cultural treasures like the Qin Shi Huang mausoleum and its significance as the starting point of the legendary Silk Road.

    These two new routes not only expand Vietjet’s network across Vietnam and internationally to destinations in Australia, India, Northeast Asia, and Southeast Asia, but also create more opportunities for cultural exchange, education, economic development, and tourism between nations.

    To celebrate the addition of these two routes, Vietjet is giving Australian travellers the chance to discover Vietnam and other beautiful destinations in the region through a seat sale. From now until 7 July 2024, travellers can score one-way, all-in tickets starting at AU$199* across Vietjet’s network. The travel period is from 22 August 2024 to 25 May 2025. 

    * Subject to availability. The availability of discounted seats varies depending on the route and travel dates.
