VGP - The first direct flight from Ha Noi to India’s New Delhi has landed at Indira Gandhi International Airport.
The new route is expected to meet the increasing travel demand of local people and international travelers between the two countries.
The plane on the Ha Noi – India route landed at Indira Gandhi International Airport on December 7 night after travelling for more than five hours.
Speaking on the occasion, Vietnamese Ambassador to India Pham Sanh Chau said he hoped the direct flight will help boost trade, tourism, culture and people-to-people exchanges between the two countries in the future.
The direct flights between Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh and New Delhi operated by Vietjet Air take more than 5 hours, helping to reduce travel time between the destinations and connect flights to Indonesia, Singapore, and Thailand, he added.
These new Vietjet flights open up a host of trade and tourism opportunities, promote the economies of the two countries, and connect India with the carrier’s network across Southeast Asia.
