Award presented at “South Korea Prestige Brand Awards 2019” ceremony in Seoul on March 28.
Vietjet Air received “The Best Service Foreign Low-Cost Carrier” award at the “South Korea Prestige Brand Awards 2019” ceremony in Seoul on March 28.
According to the organizer, the carrier was selected because of its reasonable prices and excellent services, which help more South Koreans travel abroad.
Established in 2004, the “South Korea Prestige Brand Awards” is hosted by the South Korea Economic Daily newspaper with sponsorship from South Korea’s Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy and the South Korea Brand Management Association. The awards are organized annually and select brands that are trusted and favored by South Korean customers via public survey.
The survey for this year’s awards was conducted on thousands of consumers in South Korea followed by a review from the judging panel, which includes university professors and experts from related industries, to select the best brands. The awards are considered a fair and trustworthy evaluation of brands in South Korea.
Mr. Jay L Lingeswara, Vietjet Air’s Deputy Director of Commercial, said it is a great honor for the carrier as it is the first foreign airline to receive the award in its 15-year history. “We are now operating eight routes between Vietnam and South Korea and will have a ninth, Nha Trang – Busan, starting in July,” he added. “With a desire to bring exciting flight experiences to South Korean customers, our flight crew has many South Korean pilots and flight attendants, who are friendly and ready to assist. Moreover, the modern and new Airbus fleet, flexible and inexpensive fares, and hot and delicious inflight meals also help Vietjet be well received in the South Korean market.”
With 108 domestic and international routes, Vietjet offers passengers flying experiences on new aircraft with comfy seats and delicious hot meals served by dedicated and friendly cabin crews, and many more enticing add-on services.
It operates around 400 flights daily, carrying more than 70 million passengers to date on 108 routes covering destinations across Vietnam and internationally such as Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, mainland China, Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia and Cambodia.
