Vietjet Air has recently announced it will increase the frequency of its services between Ho Chi Minh City and Taipei to daily from five return flights a week, to meet flourishing demand from business and leisure travelers on the route.

Starting from June 18 the greater frequency will provide passengers with more options and the budget carrier is also offering cheap flights on the route, starting at just VND210,000 ($9.6).

The flight between the two cities takes three hours and 25 minutes, departing Ho Chi Minh City at 2.30pm and arriving in Taipei at 6.55 pm local time. The return flight leaves Taipei at 8pm local time and lands in Ho Chi Minh City at 10.25pm.

Modern aircraft will be used on the route, and passengers can buy duty free goods and delicious meals onboard. Tickets are available at all distribution channels.

Vietjet recently received its 24th Airbus A320 aircraft and announced it will add 1,500 flights with 270,000 additional seats over the summer season to meet rising demand.

Vietjet Air is the first privately-owned airline in Vietnam and operates under the new-age airline concept. It currently has a fleet of 24 Airbus A320s and A321s, conducting 150 flights each day. Twenty-eight routes have been opened in Vietnam and between Vietnam and Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Cambodia.

On May 20 Vietjet Air launched its biggest event ever, offering a promotional program held every day from 12pm to 2pm, selling 3 million promotional tickets on its official website and Facebook page until the end of 2016. Up until June 20 it will hand over 50,000 free tickets on all of its domestic flights and on international routes to Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, and South Korea. Passengers accessing the promotions can pay by Visa Card, MasterCard, American Express, JCB, and domestic ATM cards with internet banking.
