After a gap of almost three years, the low-cost airline is back in Hong Kong. The resumption of direct flights between Ho Chi Minh City and Hong Kong by Vietnamese low-cost carrier VietJet on February 10th, following a nearly three-year hiatus, strengthened the airline’s reconnection to the Asia-Pacific region as more travel restrictions are lifted.

once more is VietJet After Vietnam and Hong Kong both lifted their separate travel restrictions for international travellers, the low-cost airline returned to Hong Kong almost six months ago.
Many passengers have been eagerly awaiting the return of Hong Kong flights because it is an essential component of VietJet’s Asia-Pacific network and will increase the availability and affordability of air travel between the two nations.

VietJet flight VJ 876 departs from Ho Chi Minh City International Airport at around 15:10 and lands at Hong Kong International Airport at roughly 18:50. The flight travels on a twice-weekly schedule every Monday and Friday.
The budget carrier’s fleet of Airbus A321neo aircraft, each with seating for at least 230 passengers, will be used for the roughly two-hour run. The first passengers on the warm-welcome return flight VJ 877, which is due to leave Hong Kong at around 19:50, received a variety of floral arrangements and mementos as a celebration of the reestablished non-stop aircraft service last Friday. Back in Ho Chi Minh City, the plane is anticipated to land at around 21:30.

While the resumed flight service to Hong Kong allows VietJet to fly at least 460 passengers weekly to the country, the low-cost carrier has other flight service plans as well.
VietJet intends to continue aiming higher for revenue growth this year in light of China’s openness. By June, the low-cost airline will have completely resumed its Chinese flight schedule, and by year’s end, it hopes to offer at least 100 flights between Vietnam and China.
If achieved, this target would result in a 20%–30% increase in VietJet’s Chinese flight network above pre–pandemic levels. Nguyn Thanh Sn, the airline’s vice president, made the following points: “We controlled about half of all flight traffic between Vietnam and China prior to the epidemic.
VietJet intends to retake its throne as the biggest airline flying between the two nations and grow more than ever this year, when China will once again allow for foreign travel.” VietJet intends to increase its capacity to reach additional overseas markets within the region that have greater potential in addition to its planned growth for China. Indian, South Korean, Japanese, and Australian nations are among them.
However, given that the global aviation industry has been rebounding, the low-cost carrier concedes that a flood of foreign carriers is anticipated to land in Vietnam this year, making its planned development substantially more difficult. But VietJet is nonetheless committed and eager to show travellers how valuable it is.
The budget airline has recently launched the VietJet SkyJoy loyalty programme with benefits and privileges to accumulate and redeem loyalty points in the hopes of increasing its brand value and broadening its passenger base, in addition to its ongoing fleet expansion to meet its increasing flight schedules.
