Vietjet to land first ever Vietnam to Queensland flights
Low-cost carrier Vietjet will soon commence the first ever flights from Vietnam to Queensland in June.
Vietjet’s twice weekly services from Ho Chi Minh City to Brisbane are predicted to land more than 31,396 Vietnamese visitors in Brisbane during the first year of operation.
It’s estimated Vietjet’s direct flights to Brisbane will generate $25.6 million for Queensland’s visitor economy and support 240 good Queensland jobs in the first year.
Vietjet will deploy an Airbus A330-300 onto the brand-new route, with a configuration of 12 business seats plus 365 seats in economy.
Passengers arriving in Brisbane from Vietnam will be able to connect to 30 destinations to experience Queensland’s great lifestyle.
The flights from Ho Chi Minh have been secured by the Queensland Government’s $200m Attracting Aviation Investment Fund (AAIF) in partnership with Brisbane International Airport.
This three-year deal will support the planned growth of services to four services per week by year three.
