Later on, passengers onboard Vietjet’s debut flight from Osaka to Hanoi were treated to outstanding Vietnamese folk dance performances, which showcased Vietnamese culture to all international passengers — and especially Japanese ones travelling to Vietnam right onboard Vietjet’s inaugural flight.


Besides, all passengers onboard both inaugural flights received charming souvenirs from representatives of Vietjet’s management.


Mr. Jeremy Goldstrich, Corporate Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer of Kansai Airports, said: “We are honored that Kansai Airport has been chosen as Vietjet’s first destination in Japan from Hanoi and soon to be from Ho Chi Minh City. Hanoi is an amazing city and is also the gateway to world famous tourist destinations such as Ha Long Bay, Ninh Binh and Sapa. We hope more people from Japan and Vietnam as well as international travelers can enjoy travelling, touring and trading between the countries thanks to Vietjet’s joyful flights with affordable ticket fares.”


Using Vietjet’s new and modern A321neo aircraft, the Hanoi-Osaka route operates a return flight on a daily basis with a flight time of more than four hours per leg.

The airline will soon launch two other routes to Japan from Vietnam including Ho Chi Minh City-Osaka (Kansai) route from December 14, 2018 and Hanoi-Tokyo (Narita) route from January 11, 2019.
