Vietjet to Launch Bangkok-Chiang Mai, Bangkok-Phuket, and Phuket-Chiang Rai

[HD video below] Vietjet is to make its domestic debut in Thailand by launching three routes: Bangkok-Chiang Mai, Bangkok-Phuket, and Phuket-Chiang Rai, as well as an international route from Bangkok to Haiphong (Vietnam).

The airline already operates direct routes from Bangkok to Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) and Hanoi.

The airline also unveiled a promotion - Its time to Vietjet - offering one million promotional air tickets priced from 0 Baht.

The promotion will run from 9-11 September 2016 from 8pm to 10pm each day for all flights in Thailand, all domestic routes in Vietnam, and all international routes between Thailand and Vietnam. The travel period is from 15 September to 31 December 2016 (excluding public holidays).

Thailands Tourism and Sports Minister, H.E. Mrs. Kobkarn Wattanavrangkul, said, Vietjets decision to invest in the future of Thai air travel with a dedicated domestic presence is a big market movement. It brings additional capacity to the low-cost flight sector in Thailand, and provides Thai people and global tourists the added benefit of greater affordable ticket choice and enhanced convenience. We have an ongoing commitment to improving bilateral relations between Thailand and Vietnam, and so this recent development gives a welcome boost to those efforts in line with the mission of TATs Two Countries, One Destination program, which has been running since last year.

Vietjet's new Thailand routes

Vietjets Vice President, Madam Nguyen Thi Thuy Binh, said, Three years ago, Thailand became Vietjets first international destination. Thailand and Vietnam have shared a close relationship thanks to our similarities in culture, cuisine and character. There are now more than 300 Thai expats working in a variety of positions at Vietjet, which is also a driving force for us to further expand our flight network in Thailand today. We are committed to offering more air travel opportunities so Thai people can visit Vietnam and more Vietnamese people can visit Thailands amazing destinations in the coming time.
