Vietjet now flies the route linking Hanoi to Denpasar, the capital city of Bali for the first time.

Vietjet officially commenced its newest direct route linking Hanoi and Bali island in Indonesia in the midst of Vietnam Lunar New Year holidays. This is Vietjet’s second service to the most famous resort island in Indonesia. Last May, the airline already launched a service linking Ho Chi Minh City to Denpasar International Airport in Bali. It is also the first direct route departing from Vietnam capital city to Bali.

Speaking at the opening ceremony, Chairwoman of Vietjet’s Board of Directors Nguyen Thanh Ha, said: “Vietjet was founded with a pioneering mission to connect the sky. We are proud to be the first airline to operate direct flights between Hanoi and Bali. The new route launched from the second day of the Lunar New Year will meet the New Year’s travel demand of the locals and international travellers with less travel time and cost. Not only connecting the two most attractive cultural tourism destinations in Asia, the Hanoi – Bali route, but also further promote cooperation between the countries in ASEAN.”

The Hanoi–Bali route operates a daily return which officially started on 26 January 2020. The flight departs from Hanoi at 10am and arrives in Bali at 4:25pm. The return flight takes off from Bali at 5:30pm and lands in Hanoi at 9:55pm (all in local times).

Meanwhile, Bali, one the most popular island destinations in Indonesia and all of Asia, is often called “The Island of the Gods” and routinely described as a tropical paradise, was voted as one of the ‘best islands in the world.’ Bali is a wonderful blend of pristine, beautiful landscapes and unique cultural charms.

Facing the epidemic of Coronavirus in Wuhan, Vietjet has announced the suspension of all of its flights to and from Mainland China starting from 1 February 2020. The airline, however, continues to operate all of its other international routes, including services to and from Hong Kong and Taiwan.
