Vietjet has welcomed its 10 millionth passenger, a milestone achievement for the airline after just three years of operations.

The lucky passenger, Ms. Kang Jeong Hee, a South Korean business woman, arrived from Ho Chi Minh on flight VJ270 to Vinh's newly furbished airport, located in the capital of Nghe An province in North Central Vietnam.

As the 10 millionth passenger, she will enjoy complimentary flights with Vietjet for a whole year.

Attending an event to mark the occasion were officials from the Ministry of Transport, Vietnam, Airports Corporation of Vietnam and authorities from Nghe An Province.

Vinh International Airport boasts excellent facilities and an attractive, modern design that will facilitate the growing transport demands for Nghe An Province and contribute to the economic development of the whole north central region, said Mr. Desmond Lin, Business Development Director of Vietjet. Looking forward, Vietjet is committed to adding routes and increasing flight frequency of existing flights to Vinh City to meet increasing travel demand. Our Ho Chi Minh City Vinh connection has already boosted tourism and trade growth between the two destinations. Meanwhile, we are delighted to have flown 10 million passengers and look forward to flying many more in the coming years.

In celebration of its 10 millionth passenger, Vietjet is currently running a daily promotion on all domestic and international routes.
