The announcement from the airline comes after India resumed scheduled international passenger flights from March 27 after a two-year-long hiatus due to the COVID pandemic.

During the lockdown period, only limited international passenger flights were operating to and from India under air bubble arrangements with specific countries. However, India had no air bubble agreement with Vietnam so far.

Giving details to news agency PTI, Vietjet Managing Director Dinh Viet Phuong said that with flights of just over five hours per leg, and a convenient flight schedule on offer throughout the week, Vietjet’s renewed and increased connectivity between Vietnam and India will create many more trade and tourism opportunities between the two countries, helping to boost the economies of both.

Battered by the COVID pandemic, the airline industry is slowly coming back to normalcy and the resumption of normal overseas flights is providing a fillip to the sector.

The Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) in the national capital is witnessing a significant jump in the first week of April after the resumption of regular international operations.

On March 8, the civil aviation ministry had announced that regular overseas flights will resume from March 27 amid a decline in coronavirus cases. In this regard the Central government had also revised the COVID guidelines for international flight operations, including the removal of the requirement to keep three seats vacant on overseas flights for medical emergencies. Besides, the requirement for the crew for having a complete PPE kit has been done away with.
