Accordingly, the Da Nang – New Delhi and Hanoi – Mumbai routes will be put into operation on May 14th, with 5 flights and 3 flights per week, respectively, while the Ho Chi Minh City – Mumbai route will offer 4 flights per week from May 15th.
Vietjet Air Deputy General Director Nguyen Thanh Son said flights between Vietnam and India take only over 5 hours with suitable departure time across days in a week. They expect to open up tourism, trade and economic cooperation opportunities between the two countries.
According to Mr. Son, the routes continue to make it easier for passengers to fly to Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand and other regional countries. India has become an attractive tourist destination in Asia in recent years because of its diverse cultural, religious, food and tourism characteristics. Besides the famous capital New Delhi, Mumbai, India's important financial and economic center, is also an extremely attractive destination. This ancient land is home to many treasures of cultural heritage, colorful festivals and the mysterious religious cradle of the East./.
