Vietjet has been named again “Best Ultra Low-Cost Airline for 2020” by AirlineRatings, the world’s best one-stop airline safety and product rating review website. This is the third consecutive year that Vietjet has been honoured at AirlineRatings’ Airline Excellence Awards, which recognize the world’s best airlines annually.
According to AirlineRatings, Vietjet has quickly grown its fleet and number of destinations opening up travel to all including those that perhaps could not afford air travel before with wonderful cabin crew and ultra-low prices. The airline has created revolutionary trends in the aviation industry.
“Vietjet has been very clever in its marketing but behind that fun is also a very smart and serious business plan that brings affordable travel to millions,” said Geoffrey Thomas, Editor-in-Chief of Airlineratings.com. “What a great operation and one that is turning heads,” he stressed.
Vietjet has recently been awarded the highest ranking for safety with 7-stars from AirlineRatings.com and has been a fully-fledged member of International Air Transport Association (IATA) with the IATA Operational Safety Audit (IOSA) certificate since 2015. It has been also listed in the world’s 50 best airlines for healthy financing and operations by Airfinance Journal in 2018 and 2019 and most lately awarded the title of “Asia Pacific Low Cost Airline of the Year” by Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA).
The AirlineRatings.com Airline Excellence Awards have been judged by seven editors with over 20 years’ industry experience. The awards combine important safety and government audits, with 12 key criteria that include: fleet age, passenger reviews profitability, investment rating, product offerings and staff relations. The world’s best airlines for 2020 list also names Air New Zealand, Singapore Airlines, Qatar Airways, Qantas, Cathay Pacific, Virgin Australia, Emirates, etc. for a variety of categories.
In another development, the airline just announced further expansion of its international network out of Danang in Central Vietnam. The airline is adding a daily service from December 12 to Hong Kong followed on December 19 by another daily flight to Taipei and on December 20 by another daily service to Singapore. It follows the launch in late October of a service to Tokyo out of Danang.
From December 9, the airline will also start flying to Delhi in India from both Hanoi (3 weekly services) and Ho Chi Minh City (four times a week). All flights are served with a single-class Airbus A321.
