MOSCOW (Vietnam News/Asia News Network): Vietnamese budget airline Vietjet Air will launch direct services between three Vietnamese cities and the Russian capital city of Moscow from mid-2022, its first-ever direct flights to Europe.

The airline released the plan at a ceremony held in Moscow on Thursday, with the attendance of President Nguyễn Xuân Phúc who was on an official visit to Russia.

Accordingly, the flights will connect Moscow with Hà Nội, HCM City and Nha Trang, using Airbus A330-300 aircraft.

There will be two flights per week between Hanoi and Moscow every Wednesday and Sunday, starting from July 3, 2022. Meanwhile, passengers on the HCM City-Moscow flights will transit in Hanoi.

The Nha Trang-Moscow flights are set to be conducted every Monday and Friday from July 10.

Vietjet’s managing director Đinh Việt Phương said Vietjet stands ready for international air routes, noting that the flights to Russia demonstrate the carrier’s commitments to its products and services.

Vietjet has a comprehensive flight network in Vietnam and across Asia Pacific. Weathering the pandemic, the airline has resumed its domestic flight network and operated a series of international flights to and from Vietnam while looking to further expand operations across continents in the near future.

Vietjet operates a new, modern, and fuel-efficient fleet with technical reliability rated among the top operators in the region and the world.
