Vietjet Air on Oct. 9 started a new route between Ho Chi Minh City and Yangon, Myanmar, to meet the travel demand of the two nations' peoples.
The new route was launched on the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Myanmar.
It will be operated with a frequency of 05 return flights per week on every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, according to a Vietjet press release.
On the route’s debut flights, passengers are also presented special gifts from Vietjet.
The flying time per sector is around 2 hours and 15 minutes. Flights depart Ho Chi Minh City at 10:25 and arrive in Yangon at 12:10 (local time). Returned flights take off Yangon at 13:00 (local time) and land in Ho Chi Minh at 15:45.
Sharing similarities in economic development and culture, Myanmar and Vietnam have recently become the new destinations for international investment in the region. Two economies also witness impressive economic growth. With these reasons, Vietjet takes Yangon as a next important spot in the airline’s plan to expand its international network.
The route is expected to partially contribute into economic and cultural exchange and global integration of each country.
