SHANGHAI, CHINA - Media OutReach Newswire - 6 February 2024 - Vietjet has received two additional aircraft under wet-leased arrangement in response to the surge in travel demand during the Lunar New Year festival, one of the longest annual holidays in Asia.

The airline has recently added nearly 750 flights, providing 154,800 additional seats to serve rising demand during the peak travel period in Vietnam and the region. Addressing the holiday travel needs of Chinese tourists, Vietjet opened the "Shanghai to Ho Chi Minh City" route in December 2023, connecting these two captivating cities. In addition, on the first day of the Lunar New Year (February 10, 2024), Vietjet will commence the new "Chengdu to Ho Chi Minh City" route, offering the opportunity for travelers from Chengdu to visit Vietnam and experience the unique Vietnamese Lunar New Year.

The added flight capacity also includes routes to and from popular tourist destinations in Vietnam such as Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Phu Quoc, Hue, Da Nang, Nha Trang, and Da Lat, catering to Chinese tourists' exploration of Vietnam.

In the last two months, Vietjet has proactively expanded its international flight network including destinations like Shanghai, Vientiane, Siem Reap (Cambodia), Busan (South Korea), Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, and Adelaide (Australia). These new destinations diversify options for Chinese and international tourists' spring travels.
