Thai VietJet Air commenced flights on a new daily service between Bangkok Suvarnabhumi and Da Nang in Vietnam on 15 October. The airline will face direct competition from Bangkok Airways on the airport pair.
- Thai VietJet Air launched its latest international route on 15 October, initiating a daily service between Bangkok Suvarnabhumi (BKK) and Da Nang (DAD) in Vietnam. The low-cost associate of Vietnamese carrier VietJet Air will operate the 842-kilometre airport pair using its fleet of A320s, with direct competition being offered by Bangkok Airways, which also operates a daily service between the two airports. It should be noted that Thai AirAsia offers a twice-daily service between Bangkok Don Mueang and the Vietnamese city, meaning that there will be four daily flights between Bangkok and Da Nang in W18/19. Da Nang is Thai VietJet’s second non-stop destination in Vietnam from Suvarnabhumi, with it already operating a five times weekly service to Da Lat from Thailand’s largest airport. It should also be noted that VietJet offers muti-daily flights to Hanoi, Hai Phong and Ho Chi Minh City from Suvarnabhumi.
