Budget carrier opens new route on September 7.
Budget carrier Jetstar Pacific began flights between Hanoi and Hong Kong on September 7 using 180-seat Airbus A320 aircraft.
According to Jetstar Pacific CEO, Mr. Le Hong Ha, the new route has received positive support from passengers as the number tickets sold has continued to rise since becoming available in mid-April.
“Along with its cheap flights in Vietnam, Jetstar Pacific is pleased to give passengers the opportunity to save money when traveling between Hanoi and Hong Kong,” Mr. Ha said. “We also see online bookings connecting to other destinations in the region via the Jetstar Group’s expanded network in Asia-Pacific.”
Jetstar Pacific is the only budget carrier to conduct flights between Hanoi and Hong Kong, with four per week, on Monday, Tuesday, Saturday, and Sunday.
The two-hour flight takes off from Hanoi at 4.15 pm and returns at 7.55pm from Hong Kong.
