VietJet is set to increase its flights to Sydney & Melbourne in September as demand for travel to Australia intensifies.
Based on data from AeroRoutes.com, the service upgrades are marginal but are still reflective of strong booking demand for the carrier.
Without further ado, let’s get into it…
VietJet Increases Melbourne Services…
For the Melbourne services, VietJet is set to increase services from thrice weekly to four times per week, using its Airbus A330s.
