Roll up, roll up! Vietnamese low cost carrier (LCC) Vietjet is celebrating two new routes by releasing tickets for one million flights for free.
The promotion -dubbed Free up your summer with Vietjet – includes all of the airline’s national and international services to Osaka (Japan), Seoul, Busan, Daegu (South Korea) and Hong Kong. That’s as well as Kaohsiung, Taipei, Taichung and Tainan in Taiwan; Bangkok, Phuket and Chiang Mai, in Thailand; and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Yangon (Myanmar), Phnom Penh, Siem Reap (Cambodia) and Singapore.
Also included in the Free up your summer with Vietjet campaign are the airline’s new services, Nha Trang to Siem Reap (Cambodia) and Hanoi to Osaka (Japan), which will launch on 21 September and 8 November 2018, respectively.
The Hanoi – Osaka route will operate on a daily basis with an average flight time of four hours per sector. The flight will depart from Hanoi at 1:40 am (local time) and arrive at Osaka at 7:50 am (local time). The return leg will depart at 9:20 am (local time) and arrive at Hanoi at 1:05 pm (local time).
This means, in theory and with the odds all being equal, you can travel from Osaka Castle to Osaka International (approx. 30 minutes) take the 7hr 50 min flight to Hano,i and then drive to Ha Long Bay — which can now take as little as two hours — all under 12 hours!
The Nha Trang – Siem Reap route will operate a daily return flight with an average flight time of one hour and 20 minutes per sector. The flight will depart from Nha Trang at 7:25 am (local time) and arrive at Siem Reap at 8:45 am (local time). The return leg will depart at 9:25 am (local time) and arrive at Nha Trang at 10:45 am (local time).
For all you agents out there, time is a factor and these prices are only available from 20 June to 22 June 2018, between the promotional hours of 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm (Singapore local time), for travel dates between 14 August to 31 December 2018 – so make sure to act quickly.
