Vietjet, a prominent airline in Vietnam, has announced the launch of a new international route connecting Ho Chi Minh City with Chengdu, China. This development comes as a strategic move to strengthen the trade and tourism ties between Vietnam and China. The new service is set to begin on February 10, 2024, coinciding with the Lunar New Year, signaling a festive start to this international venture.

The new route promises to offer a frequency of seven return flights per week. Departures from Tan Son Nhat International Airport are scheduled for 19:10 local time, arriving at Chengdu Tianfu International Airport at 00:15 the following day. Return flights will leave Chengdu at 00:50 and land back in Ho Chi Minh City at 03:55. This schedule is designed to cater to both business and leisure travelers, providing convenient timing for various travel plans.

In celebration of the New Year 2024 and the launch of this route, Vietjet is offering a special promotion with thousands of VND0 tickets. This limited offer is available for tickets booked on their official website and mobile app, covering flights from February 10 to March 30, 2024. This initiative is expected to attract a significant number of passengers eager to explore new destinations or travel for business.

Chengdu, known for its vibrant cultural heritage, offers attractions such as Jinli Ancient Street and the famous Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. The city also serves as a gateway to Jiuzhaigou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Ho Chi Minh City, on the other hand, is a bustling metropolis and a key economic center in Vietnam. The new route enhances the accessibility of these cities, promoting cultural exchange and business opportunities.

Vietjet's expansion reflects the growing demand for improved air connectivity between Vietnam and China, driven by increasing business interactions and a mutual interest in cultural exploration. This route is expected to contribute significantly to the regional tourism industry and facilitate smoother trade relations between the two countries. The initiative aligns with Vietjet's ongoing efforts to expand its international presence and provide travelers with more options for global exploration.
