Vietnamese budget carrier VietJet Air said Wednesday that it will launch a new route on Jan. 15 next year, linking Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam with Taichung in Taiwan.
The flight will operate four days a week — Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday — taking three hours and 45 minutes between the two cities, according to the airline.
VietJet Air launched flights between Ho Chi Minh City and Taipei in 2014 and a new route from Ho Chi Minh City to Tainan in June 2016.
It added a Hanoi-Taipei service in October and said it plans to start a service between Ho Chi Minh City and Kaohsiung on Dec. 12.
Vietjet Air now has a fleet of 40 A320 and A321 aircraft that operate some 350 flights per day.
With 53 domestic and international routes, the airline has carried approximately 25 million passengers to date and is planning to expand its operation throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
