Vietjet has become the first Vietnamese airline operating the direct route connecting HCMC and Perth, linking Vietnam's most dynamic city and the Western Australia state.

The new route has increased Vietjet's number of flights between Vietnam and Australia to 38 flights per week.

Vietjet said the route will be launched from November 21 with a frequency of two return flights per week.

The flights from HCMC will take off at 1:35 p.m. (local time) on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and land in Perth at 9:20 p.m. (local time).

In the opposite direction, the flights depart at Perth International Airport at 11:20 p.m. (local time) and land at Tan Son Nhat Airport at 05:05 a.m. (local time) also on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

Australia is among the top 10 markets with the highest number of tourists to Vietnam and the city in recent years, according to the HCMC Department of Tourism.

HCMC welcomed more than 130,000 Australians last year, accounting for 3.5% of the total number of visitors to the southern economic hub.
