When the airport adds new routes, Vietjet is offering introductory deals from Brisbane.
As Easter approaches in Australia, Vietjet is offering tempting deals, and Brisbane Airport is expanding its service and making progress toward full recovery.
VietJet, the top low-cost airline in Vietnam, has a remarkable track record of introducing new routes. By adding Brisbane to Melbourne and Sydney for direct flights to Ho Chi Minh City, it announced the opening of its third Australian route last week.
With a focus on its AU$200 ($134) one-way special rate, VietJet then offered Brisbane clients the same bargains as those for travelers from Melbourne and Sydney on Tuesday.
We must clarify that this cost does not include the typical taxes and fees, as is always the case with airline deals, and that there are restrictions. Customers must act quickly to take advantage of the offer, though, since it expires today.
In Vietnam, domestic transportation is free.
Passengers can benefit from VietJet’s various special deals just like they can with the flights to Melbourne and Sydney. There are plenty of these, such as the soon-to-be-announced Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday promotional offers, cheap SkyBoss Business and SkyBoss programs, and free domestic connections within Vietnam.
Signing up for VietJet’s SkyJoy loyalty program is also worthwhile because ticket buyers can earn up to 3,300 points. They can be exchanged for VietJet gift cards and merchandise from more than 250 retail, dining, and travel businesses in Vietnam.
The Brisbane Airport (BNE) – Ho Chi Minh City (SGN) service is the country of Queensland’s first nonstop flight to Vietnam. Beginning June 16th, flight VJ84 leaves Brisbane Airport at 23:10 and arrives in Ho Chi Minh City at 04:50 the following day.
On Monday and Friday, the service will run twice a week, with the return VJ83 flight departing Brisbane at 21:10 and departing Ho Chi Minh City at 10:05. One of Vietjet’s five Airbus A330-300 widebodies, outfitted with 365 economy seats and 12 business class seats, will fly the route.
The recovery process at Brisbane Airport is advanced.
Brisbane Airport is excited about a number of new routes that will provide Queenslanders more options for quick and simple international connections, in addition to the historic first nonstop connection between Brisbane and Vietnam.
The following routes from Brisbane will either begin operating or resume operating during the next four weeks:
On March 23, Virgin Australia will resume service to Faleolo International Airport (APW), which serves Samoa.
Jetstar will start offering flights to Auckland Airport (AKL) in New Zealand on March 27.
From BNE to Port Vila Airport (VLI) in Vanuatu, Virgin Australia will resume flights on March 31.
On April 23, Korean Air will resume operations between Brisbane and Seoul’s Incheon International Airport (ICN).
Easter travel season is one of Australia’s busiest travel times, and these new services coincide with that period. In April, many tourists will take prolonged vacations beyond the Easter weekend, with Brisbane Airport estimating that between April 1 and 25, almost 1.4 million people will transit through the airport.
This is 13% greater than the previous year, which the airport attributes to the improvement in international inbound and outbound traffic at BNE. Expected Easter vacation capacity through BNE is increasing 2% on domestic flights and 77% on foreign flights from 2022.
Easter is a busy travel time, and this year will see thousands more travelers at the airport, according to Stephen Beckett, head of public affairs at BNE. New Zealand, the UK, and Bali in Indonesia are Queenslanders’ top three preferred international destinations.
The majority of incoming travelers, on the other hand, will come from the USA, the UK, and New Zealand. Beckett continued: “One market where two-way traffic is growing significantly is India. It was our eighth-largest incoming market prior to the pandemic; currently, it is our fourth-largest. India was the 11th most popular destination for Queenslanders traveling overseas in 2019, but it is currently the sixth most popular.”
