There are now more than 300 Thai expats working in a variety of positions at Vietjet, which is also a driving force for us to further expand our flight network in Thailand today. We are committed to offering more air travel opportunities so Thai people can visit Vietnam and more Vietnamese people can visit Thailand’s amazing destinations in the coming time. We develop our products not just so we can offer customers a safe, enjoyable flight but so we can also offer them a complete tourism service package, which eases travel for each and every passenger from the moment they book online. I would like to thank the Thai authorities and the people of Thailand for supporting us joining this market and so we can further contribute to the development of Thailand’s tourism and trade.”
