VietJet has announced it’ll inaugurate services between Ho Chi Minh City and Adelaide, Australia.
The newly announced connection will debut on November 21st with five weekly return flights.
Interestingly, the flight will not operate nonstop from Vietnam to Adelaide; instead, it will utilise Perth as a vital part of the route.
The service will launch the same day as Perth and continue to Adelaide, acting as a triangular route.
VietJet will touch down in Perth at 1420 before at 1520. This is before it arrives in Adelaide at 2110 on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.
The aircraft is slated to depart Adelaide at 725 after an overnight layover before returning to Perth at 855 and leaving at 955 for Ho Chi Minh City.
VietJet is heavily committed to offering low-cost flights between Australia and Vietnam, an ever-increasingly important market.
Respectively, Perth and Adelaide will become the 4th and 5th cities the carrier will serve, with existing services to Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
In December, the three existing cities will also increase operations, with Melbourne and Sydney boosting to daily and Brisbane getting a thrice weekly connection.
Jetstar, Vietnam Airlines, Bamboo Airways, and VietJet compete in the Australia to Vietnam market, each looking to outdo the other with high-quality service, cheap flights, and attractive timing.
