Following the slump during the COVID-19 pandemic, the global aviation industry is looking to explore a new market section. At the top of the global airlines’ list is India, thanks to its lucrative market with a growing population that can afford foreign travel. Now, two of Vietnam’s biggest carriers VietJet Air and Vietnam Airlines are competing for increased flights between the two countries. While the privately owned VietJet Air made its move by planning five Indian destinations from four Vietnamese cities, the flag carrier Vietnam Airlines has responded by increasing its flight services to India by 30 per cent, starting March 26. The flag carrier currently runs five flights a week between the two countries, which will soon be increased to daily flights to New Delhi.
Vietnam Airlines, which resumed operations in India in June last year after the pandemic, currently provides three weekly flights from Hanoi and two from Ho Chi Minh to New Delhi. The airline is increasing its flight schedule, adding one daily trip to Delhi from Hanoi, four times weekly and one from Ho Chi Minh, three times weekly.
