The Vietnam’s budget airline Vietjet Air has launched a promotional program with tickets for domestic flights priced from as little as VND9,000 (39 US cents), excluding tax and additional fees, between the golden hours of 12:00 and 14: 00 from April 23 to April 25.
This huge discount on airfares comes following a decision made by the Ministry of Transport and the Civial Aviation Authority of Vietnam on April 23 that will see Vietjet Air increase the number of return flights to six per day on the Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh City route. In addition, three flights per day will be running on the Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City-Da Nang route, whilst the airline will also be operating daily return flights on a number of other domestic routes.
This promotion is applying to flights departing between April 23 and December 31, with the exception of public holidays. Passengers will be able to check on specific flight schedules through several of the airline’s official channels such as the website, Facebook, the hotline number at 19001886, and ticket offices which can be found nationwide.
In addition, Vietjet Air is also operating approximately 10 cargo flights each day to transport free medical supplies and equipment to support medical centres in their fight against the novel coronavirus. Moreover, health workers will be offered free flights during this period.
To ensure the safety of passengers and crew members, the airline’s flights will have to comply with the highest of safety standards set by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA).
As a result, passengers and crew members will have to strictly abide by health procedures before they are allowed to board flights, in addition to filling in medical declaration forms and wearing masks for the duration of their flight.
