Vietnam low-cost carrier VietJet has announced Moscow as its first Europe destination. The airline’s non-stop service will connect the Russian capital with Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and the beach resort of Nha Trang from early July next year.

The airline hopes to begin its Hanoi – Moscow service on July 3, 2022 operating two times weekly on Wednesdays and Sundays. Flights from Ho Chi Minh City with a transit in Hanoi will start on the same day, with the same frequency.

The Nha Trang – Moscow route will also operate two times weekly every Monday and Friday from July 10, 2022. The flight time for each route is around 10 hours per leg, with an additional two hours for the Ho Chi Minh City transit flight.

Vietjet Managing Director Dinh Viet Phuong said, “Vietjet is ready for international routes. We have invested in a modern fleet, and we will expand our intercontinental flight network in the coming time.”

All these services will be operated from Moscow Sheremetyevo Airport with Vietjet’s new and modern A330-300 aircraft.

These developments come in the midst of Vietnam's plans for a phased approach in its reopening.
