“The launch of this partnership with Vietjet represents a significant milestone for the two airlines to provide customers with better access to destinations between Japan and Vietnam and beyond, and we believe it will contribute to generate more passenger and cargo traffic between the two countries and open up commercial opportunities on the two airlines’ international networks,” said Tadashi Fujita, JAL Executive Vice President.

JAL operates daily non-stop services between Tokyo (Narita) and Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) and Hanoi, as well as between Tokyo (Haneda) and Ho Chi Minh.

Luu Duc Khanh, Managing Director of Vietjet said, “Japan is our key market as we expand the airline’s flight network in the Asia-Pacific region. The partnership between Vietjet and JAL will diversify our air transportation products and the market segment while stimulating the movement of people between the two countries, as well as developing the two airlines’ relationship in line with our international commercial operation capabilities in the coming time.”
