Vietjet Air has inaugurated a new route connecting Ho Chi Minh City and China’s Shanghai, facilitating convenient and easy travel for both residents and tourists.

The route operates with seven round trips per week, with a flight time of just over 4 hours per leg.

With these new routes, flyers can easily travel to Shanghai, China’s most populous city.

The connectivity between Ho Chi Minh City and Shanghai will open up more opportunities for the development of high-end products, services, trade connections, and investment attraction.

Ho Chi Minh City, home to nearly 9 million people, is a prominent economic, cultural, and tourist centre of Vietnam and Southeast Asia. It is also a transport hub, offering seamless connectivity to a plethora of destinations within Vietnam and internationally.

Vietjet has operated services between Vietnam and China since 2014 with the very first routes facilitating travel for Chinese visitors to popular tourist destinations in Vietnam, including Nha Trang, Da Nang, and Phu Quoc.

Vietnam was also one of the five largest sources of foreign tourists to China, which recorded over 7.9 million Vietnamese travellers in 2019 as calculated by the Chinese Ministry of Culture and Tourism.

During the first 11 months of 2023, more than 11.2 million international tourists came to Vietnam, including over 1.5 million Chinese arrivals, statistics show.
