HCMC – Local low-cost carrier Vietjet Air has opened two direct routes linking Hanoi with Nagoya and Fukuoka in Japan, giving passengers more travel choices, in addition to its existing services between Vietnam’s two biggest cities, HCMC and Hanoi, and Japan’s Tokyo and Osaka.
The airline will operate three round-trip flights per week on the Hanoi-Fukuoka route on Tuesdays, Thurdays, and Saturdays, while the Hanoi-Nagoya route will have four weekly flights on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
Japan has granted visas to Vietnamese citizens who travel to Japan for a range of purposes such as tourism, short-term business trips, studying, working, or visiting families and friends. Japanese visitors to Vietnam are subject to a visa waiver program with a maximum length of stay of 15 days.
The carrier recommends passengers to make early bookings to receive various airfares via the airline’s official channels such as its website www.vietjetair.com, mobile app Vietjet Air, or Facebook fanpage www.facebook.com/vietjetvietnam
