Vietjet to connect Ho Chi Minh City to Brisbane

BrisbaneVietjet announced Brisbane as its first Australian long haul destination following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the airline and Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC), Queensland, Australia.

Scheduled to commence in 2019, the non-stop service between Ho Chi Minh City and Brisbane is expected to boost trade integration and exchange, a move that will greatly serve the interests of the region.

Julieanne Alroe, CEO and Managing Director of BAC said travel between Queensland and Vietnam has been growing at an average 8 per cent per annum over the last five years and this new service would further stimulate the market. “It makes perfect sense for Vietjet to choose Brisbane, Queensland as its very first Australian port for direct flights given Ho Chi Minh City is one of Brisbane’s top five markets without non-stop services. We look forward to welcoming Vietjet to the Brisbane Airport family and further strengthening the ties between Queensland and Vietnam,” she said.

Vietjet Vice President Nguyen Thi Thuy Binh said, “Vietjet has been well prepared with comfortable, high-quality and friendly services to expand its international flight network to top destinations, connecting Vietnam’s economic and tourism hubs with Asia Pacific countries, including Australia – a popular tourist and business hotspot”.

“This new route addition presents us with an opportunity to better serve the demands of travelers in Vietnam and the region. We are proud to be the pioneer airline to operate direct services from Vietnam to Brisbane, a dynamic business centre that boasts friendly people, pleasant weather and living conditions that is very attractive for international travelers.”

Located in Southeast Australia, Brisbane – the capital of the Sunshine State, boasts a population of over 2 million people, making it the third-largest city in Australia. Brisbane’s year-round idyllic subtropical weather, award-winning food and wine, sophisticated hotels, adventurous activities and spectacular scenery has been a major draw-card for many domestic and international travelers, especially those from the Asia Pacific region, including Vietnam.
