Vietjet marks Sydney debut – Business Traveler

Vietjet yesterday welcomed nearly 400 passengers at Sydney International Airport who arrived on its inaugural flight from Ho Chi Minh City.

The airline also recently celebrated the launch of its Ho Chi Minh City – Melbourne service.

Despite its low-cost carrier guise, Vietjet offers an angled-flat business class service on its Airbus A330 routes to Australia.

These ‘SkyBoss’ seats are configured 2-2-2 and come with upgraded amenities and services while the back of the aircraft is configured 3-3-3.

Vietjet is leasing former AirAsia X aircraft for its longest routes.

Vietjet will operate thrice-weekly on HCMC-Sydney, as well as HCMC-Melbourne. From June, it will add a twice-weekly HCMC-Brisbane service.

“The first two routes connecting Ho Chi Minh City to Melbourne and Sydney have proved Vietjet’s strong commitment to provide multiple services for Australians to explore Vietnam and other Asian destinations through our diverse classes of SkyBoss Business, SkyBoss, Deluxe and Eco.

Vietjet’s affordable fares and dedicated services on new A330 aircraft will also ease traveling from Asia to Oceania, making traveling in the region the most convenient ever in the coming time. Our inaugural flights have seen a full flight capacity both ways and we are thankful for the great responses from our passengers, partners and the governments of the two countries for making Vietjet’s new milestone memorable,” commented Vietjet Chief Operating Officer, Michael Hickey.

“As Australia marks the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations with Vietnam, it’s fitting that our 50th airline is a Vietnamese carrier,” added Sydney Airport Chief Executive Officer, Geoff Culbert.

To celebrate its launch, Vietjet is offering a special promotion for all Vietnam – Australia routes every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday with ‘zero-dollar fares’, meaning passengers only have to pay for fees and taxes under this promotion.
