Following the launch of Ho Chi Minh City-Pattaya route, Vietjet will operate the most routes and frequencies between Thailand and Vietnam with eight direct routes in total.

The opening of the newest service is expected to promote the number of tourists travelling between Ho Chi Minh City and the southern provinces of Vietnam with the Rayong and Pattaya area, a popular international tourist destination in Thailand.

In addition, the new service will aim to bring more convenient connection for international visitors via two gateways at Tan Son Nhat and U-Tapao International Airport.
