VietJet has launched an affiliate company, VietJet Air Cargo.

VietJet Air Cargo plans to operate 28 routes this year and will look to increase this by 39 in 2015 as cargo demand increases both locally and globally.

Partnering with Interlines to enhance and further develop its cargo network, the airline will not only focus its services for local and international commercial flights, but also in freighter fleet and air charter services nationwide and all over the world.

The airlines fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft is also expected to reach 30 by end of next year.

There is a huge potential for air cargo in Vietnam. Currently this service is mainly offered by international airlines and most local airlines have yet to be qualified for such services in this market, said Mr Do Xuan Quang, Managing Director of VietJet Air Cargo.

According to the International Air Transport Association, air cargo accounts for 25% of total exports in Vietnam. In Hanoi, there has been a steady increase in the air transportation of commodities and this is positive for the air cargo industry in Vietnam with the expected revenue estimated to reach beyond one billion US$ in 2015.

Since VietJet started its operations three years ago, the airline has doubled its commercial fleet, resulting in the transportation of approximately six million passengers thus far.

VietJet currently operates 24 domestic and international routes.
