HCMC – Vietjet will open three direct air routes connecting three Vietnamese cities and Moscow, the capital of Russia, in mid 2022, marking the launch of its first-ever non-stop air services to Europe.
The carrier announced the launch of these air links between Hanoi, HCMC and Nha Trang and Moscow on December 3 in the presence of Vietnamese State President Nguyen Xuan Phuc, high-ranking officials and business representatives of Vietnam and Russia during the President’s official visit to Russia.
The Hanoi–Moscow route will have two weekly flights every Wednesday and Sunday, starting from July 3, 2022. The airline will start operating its HCMC–Moscow air service on the same date and frequency, with a layover in Hanoi City.
The Nha Trang–Moscow route will operate two flights per week every Monday and Friday from July 10, 2022.
The average flying time for each route is around 10 hours. All these services will be operated from the Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport, using Vietjet’s new and modern A330-300 aircraft and the Skyboss Premier services available.
“Vietjet is ready to relaunch international services. We have invested in a modern fleet and will expand our intercontinental flight network in the coming time,” Vietjet Managing Director Dinh Viet Phuong said.
“I believe that Vietjet’s new services to Russia will again prove our commitment to offering top quality flight products and services.”
Vietjet has a comprehensive flight network in Vietnam and across the Asia Pacific. After weathering the pandemic, the airline resumed its domestic flight network and operated a series of international flights from and to Vietnam while looking to further expand operations across continents in the near future.
