COMPETITION FOR the cost-conscious Aussie traveller is hotting up with another budget airline set to fly Down Under from April.
Vietjet, Vietnam’s leading low-cost carrier, will commence flights from Ho Chi Minh to Melbourne on April 8 and to Sydney from April 12. Both cities will get six flights a week with plans to expand to Brisbane, Darwin and Adelaide.
Passengers can choose from different ticket classes including SkyBoss business, SkyBoss, deluxe and eco, each offering checked baggage, organic food and free travel insurance.
