Vietjet’s first direct route from Vietnam to Japan touched down on 8 November – the first codeshare flight to be operated between the airline and Japan Airlines.
The carrier started a daily Airbus A321neo route from Hanoi International Airport to Osaka’s Kansai International Airport.
Vietjet departs Hanoi each day at 01:40h and arrives in Osaka at 07:50h. Coming in the other direction, the flight takes off in Osaka at 09:20h and lands in Hanoi at around 13:05h (all local times).
