Accordingly, the leading Vietnamese new-age carrier will operate twice weekly services between Ho Chi Minh City’s Tan Son Nhat International Airport and Brisbane Airport by modern wide-body aircraft, starting June 16.

The flights are expected to bring more than 30,000 Vietnamese visitors in Brisbane, generating 17 million USD for Queensland’s economy, and creating 240 jobs for the state, during the first year of operation.

Vietjet said adding Brisbane to the airline's list of destinations will be another development step to broadly connect Australia and Vietnam.

Vietjet operates around 450 flights daily on 160 routes connecting Vietnam and Asian and European countries./.
