Apart from the “A cosy Tet for you” 2021 programme, Vietjet has also participated in several charity activities since its establishment, spreading the company’s culture of good life – good people to the community. This way of living, which is inspired by Vietjet’s President & CEO Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, has become part of the company employees’ daily lives.

Over the years, the Vietjet President and Vietjet employees have participated in many charity activities across the countries seeking to build a better life for the people.

In 2020, Vietjet has given presents to Vietnamese veterans, families of war invalids and martyrs and children in remote areas. The airline has also operated flights bringing Vietnamese citizens home from areas affected by the COVID-19 pandemic; offered free delivery of medical supplies and free tickets to health workers during the fight against the pandemic, and granted free tickets to officers and free transport of aid supplies to flooded areas in central Vietnam.

The airline believes that not only its business operations but its charity activities, especially those concerning children and young people who are the future of the country as well as vulnerable people in the society, will ultimately help build a better community.
