By adding Adelaide and Perth, Vietjet has more than doubled the number of weekly flights it operates to Australia to 58—less than a year after entering the Australian market in April 2023.
VietJet now operates flights to Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, and Sydney, five of Australia’s most important urban centres.
Airport officials in Perth and Adelaide, Rita Saffiotti, the Deputy Premier of Western Australia, and Zoe Bettison, the Minister of Tourism in South Australia, have all praised VietJet for establishing these new routes.
With the addition of these two new routes, VietJet now operates 58 weekly flights between Vietnam and Australia’s five main cities (Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, and Adelaide).
“VietJet provides affordable air travel focusing strongly on customer service, and we are delighted to welcome the airline to Perth Airport; we look forward to building on the relationship to deliver a great new holiday destination in Vietnam for Western Australians,” said Scott Woodward, COO of Perth Airport.
Perth, the capital of Western Australia, is the country’s fourth-largest city. It has a mild temperature all year, a thriving economy, and a rich cultural landscape.
Meanwhile, Adelaide is the country’s fifth-biggest city. It offers a diversified landscape from the coast to the hills. Adelaide is famed for its various festivals and sporting events, cuisine and wine, bustling beaches, and large manufacturing districts.
Vietnam is South Australia’s 12th largest export destination, with exports to Vietnam increasing by 32 per cent in the 12 months to September 2023, growing to almost half a billion dollars a year.
The service will offer South Australia increased accessibility to valuable tourism markets, helping grow the state’s visitor economy, which is currently worth $9.9 billion.
South Australian tourism minister Zoe Bettison said, “It is terrific to have VietJet now flying into Adelaide, the first Vietnamese airline to include our city as a regular destination – opening up significant opportunities for South Australia.”
“Greater access to key tourism and trade markets in Asia is hugely valuable, with tourism in the Asian region currently worth $602 million to our state and exports to Vietnam now worth almost half a billion dollars a year,” Bettison added.
With five weekly return flights, the new VietJet routes will connect Vietnam’s most dynamic and populous city with these two large cities in Australia. Through VietJet’s extensive flight network, Australia will be linked to India, Southeast Asia, East Asia, and beyond.
Western Australian and South Australian communities and government officials have welcomed VietJet’s new routes with open arms.
The aircraft used for these flights are state-of-the-art and eco-friendly, flown by experienced pilots. Passengers travelling to Vietnam may enjoy delicious, hot, organic meals showcasing global cuisine. In addition, when you fly with VietJet, you’ll get free Sky Care insurance and access to the SkyJoy loyalty program, which allows you to accumulate points and redeem rewards.
When buying a ticket online, guests may take advantage of Vietjet’s “Fly Now – Pay Later” programme, which offers convenient and quick payment plans. With this programme, Vietjet helps passengers “overcome financial burdens,” especially in challenging economic times, allowing them to return to their hometown for reunions, travel, visit relatives, and enjoy festivals, Lunar New Year, and the arrival of spring.
