Budget carrier Vietjet Air plans to launch direct flights from Hanoi and HCMC to New Delhi this December.

The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam last month approved the budget carrier’s request to operate direct flights to India based on an air transport agreement between the two countries signed in 2013.

The Ho Chi Minh City-New Delhi route will open from December 6 onward with four flights a week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

The carrier had earlier announced plans to connect HCMC with the Indian capital in July last year to meet the growing demand from Vietnamese holiday-goers, but they failed to materialise.

The Hanoi-New Delhi route will operate from December 7 onward with three flights a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

Taj Mahal, a UNESCO heritage site and one of the world’s seven wonders, is a popular tourist attraction in India.

Both direct air routes will help cut traveling time between the two countries from 15 to five hours, opening up opportunities for boosting bilateral economic and tourism cooperation.

Meanwhile, Indian budget carrier Indigo has also announced plans to launch the first direct flight between the two countries on October 3 this year, connecting Hanoi and the eastern Indian city of Kolkata (formerly known as Calcutta).

Vietnam currently has six commercial airlines licensed to fly: Vietnam Airlines, Vietjet Air, Jetstar, VASCO, Bamboo Airways and the latest Vietstar Airlines. Thien Minh and Vietravel Airlines are companies vying to be the seventh.
