Vietjet, Vietnam’s only private airline, has said it plans to launch flights connecting Vladivostok and Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, Hue, and Phu Quoc.
This announcement was made on Monday during the official visit to Russia by Vietnam’s Party Chief Nguyen Phu Trong.
The four-hour flight between Hanoi and Vladivostok, a city and the administrative center of Primorsky Krai, Russia, is scheduled to be opened in May 2015 with three round trips per week, Vietjet said in a statement.
“Following the flight from Vladivostok to destinations in Vietnam, Vietjet will connect this flight to other Southeast countries such as Cambodia, Thailand, and Singapore with the only stop in Vietnam,” the carrier said.
“Moving forward, Vietjet will continue to expand the flight network from Vietnam to other provinces in Russia,” it said.
