VietJet has promised its flight attendants will be properly clothed on maiden route
Vietnamese carrier VietJet has been cornered into assuring Indonesia that its flight attendants will be fully clothed when it makes its maiden flight to Jakarta.
The airline’s announcement that it will launch a direct route from Ho Chi Minh City to Jakarta was shrouded in controversy because of a divisive PR-stunt by the airline in 2012.
The airline was fined 20 million Dong — about $A1100 — when it hosted a mid-flight dance by bikini-clad beauty pageant contestants without first gaining permission from the nation’s aviation authorities.
Five women, all candidates in a local beauty contest, performed the three-minute Hawaiian-themed dance while passengers recorded the show on camera phones and later posted clips online.
The controversial in-flight entertainment was to celebrate its maiden flight between Ho Chi Minh City and the tourist hub of Nha Trang.
So when VietJet announced its inaugural flight to the capital of Indonesia, it made the government of the conservative Muslim country nervous that its flight attendants might not be fully clothed on the route.
However, Indonesia’s ambassador to Vietnam, Ibnu Hadi, has confirmed that VietJet’s flight attendants will be appropriately attired on the flight — and all flights to Indonesia.
“(The airline) has been reprimanded by their (the Vietnamese) government for their stunt.
“VietJet is a budget airline and they will open a route to Indonesia without the bikinis. The opening of the route is still being discussed. Hopefully before the close of this year.”
And during a press conference in Jakarta on Tuesday, VietJet’s deputy director for commercial affairs, Jay L Lingeswara, told journalists that the airline only featured bikini-clad flight attendants on specific occasions.
Mr Lingeswara added that the company had also learned from its experience with the opening of a route to Malaysia.
VietJet has also confirmed it will provide halal food for Muslim passengers, the Jakarta Post reported.
While the bikini stunt attracted a lot of controversy for objectifying women and inviting sexual harassment, it also shot the local carrier to fame and made its CEO, Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, the first female billionaire in the country.
VietJet announced it was to launch Kaosiung - Hanoi direct flights on 29th October
Budget carrier VietJet Air announced on Thursday that it will start offering direct flights between Kaohsiung in southern Taiwan and Hanoi on Oct. 29 to meet increased demand.
The new service will be the carrier's sixth route between Taiwan and Vietnam, following the Taipei-Hanoi and Taipei/Taichung/Tainan/Kaohsiung-Ho Chi Minh City routes. The service will operate every day except Mondays and Thursdays, according to the airline, which will become the number one carrier for Taiwan-Vietnam flights. The airline said it hopes to capitalize on growing interest in traveling between the two countries in the wake of the Taiwanese government's "New Southbound Policy," which aims to forge closer ties with Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) members, as well as India, Australia and New Zealand.
According to Taiwan's Tourism Bureau, visitor arrivals from Vietnam to Taiwan reached 181,104 during the first six months of 2017, up 113.44 percent from the same period last year. Tourism authorities in Vietnam said there were 297,852 Taiwanese visitors to Vietnam from January to June 2017, up 122.9 percent year-on-year.
It was announced that airlines in Vietnam are unlikely to bear the brunt of the additional cost they will have to pay for using the country's airports. Vietnam’s aviation authorities have decided to raise service fees for all carriers that use the country's airports from October this year, a move that is likely to propel airfares in the same direction.
Accordingly, the cost incurred each time a plane touches down or takes off will rise by 5 percent from the current level, and there are plans to raise it by a further 5 percent from June 2018, the Ministry of Transport said. In addition, a 15 percent premium will be charged for planes that take off or land during peak hours, while a 15 percent discount will be offered for those that arrive or depart in off-peak periods.
VietJet announced that all bikini-clad cabin crew will have to be properly clothed on all future flights.
A BUDGET airline bizarrely promised that its cabin crew will keep their clothes on during a landmark flight to Jakarta, Indonesia. The stark announcement from Vietnam's VietJet carrier comes years after a bikini-clad PR stunt landed the airline a (20 million Dong) £678.2 fine. Five female bikini-clad flight attendants took part in a mid-flight dance posing as beauty pageant contestants.
But the airline had not obtained permission from Vietnam's aviation authorities. The Hawaiian-themed dance lasted three-minutes - the shocked passengers recorded the entire show on their camera phones. VietJet launched the mid-dance flight to celebrate its first slight from Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh City to the country's tourist hub, Nha Trang.
Indonesia reportedly became nervous when VietJet announced its first landmark flight to its Jakarta - as its a predominantly Muslim country. But Ibnu Hadi, Indonesia's ambassador to Vietnam has since confirmed that VietJet’s flight attendants will be appropriately attired on the flight — and all flights to Indonesia.
VietJet Air announced a business tie-up with Japan Airlines.
Japan Airlines and Vietnamese budget airline VietJet Air inked an agreement Tuesday to form a comprehensive business alliance. The two sides said at a press conference in Ho Chi Minh City on Tuesday they plan to implement code-sharing for JAL-operated flights from Japan to Vietnam and flights within Japan, and for VietJet-operated flights within Vietnam and to and from surrounding Asian countries.
JAL was previously allied with Vietnam Airlines, but that partnership was dissolved last year after ANA Holdings Inc, parent of JAL's main domestic rival All Nippon Airways, acquired a stake in the Vietnamese state-run airline followed by a code-share and mileage programme partnership. JAL and VietJet said they are considering an expansion of their networks depending on demand flows in their domestic markets and in surrounding countries. JAL currently operates flights from Narita to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, and from Haneda to Ho Chi Minh City.
VietJet Air announced it was set to open its first route connecting Vietnam and Japan with the launch of service from Hanoi to the western Japanese city of Osaka, probably by early next year.
The Vietnamese budget airline aims to meet growing demand from business and leisure travelers in the two countries. Japanese travelers made some 1.6 million trips to and from Vietnam last year, making it the country's fourth-largest market in the Asia-Pacific region, after South Korea, Thailand and Singapore. VietJet had intended to begin with service from Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City to Tokyo. But fierce competition from other airlines, including Vanilla Air, a Japanese low-cost carrier, persuaded VietJet to alter its plans.

Vietjet Air Cargo will launch its first freighter service in October as Vietnam’s air cargo industry continues a strong growth trajectory. With a Korean express logistics company as its first customer, Vietjet’s initial freighter services will concentrate on South-east Asia, with Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Manila likely destinations. Vietjet has expanded rapidly since its bikini-clad launch in 2011, building up a fleet of 41 aircraft in less than six years. Last year, the carrier recorded a 39% increase in revenue to $1.23bn, while passenger numbers jumped 50% to over 14m.
VietJet Air launched a new route between Hanoi and Siem Reap. According to Vietjet, the airline operates one daily return flight on the route with a flight time of 1 hour and 45 minutes.

Vietjet Air currently operates daily Ho Chi Minh City – Yangon flight
VietJetAir announced it will consider entering the longhaul budget market
Talk of acquiring a small fleet of widebody jets capable of non-stop service to Europe and North America first surfaced in early 2014 when Managing Director Luu Duc Khanh said widebody offerings from each of Airbus and Boeing were both being looked at. Plans at the time had suggested a possible 2017 launch for flights to Australia, Russia, Western Europe and North America. VietJetAir operates a fleet of twenty-seven A320-200s and ten A321-200s on flights to thirty-one destinations in Vietnam as well as South Korea, Thailand, Cambodia, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Myanmar, and Malaysia.
In October 2016 VietJet Air launched two new air routes between Hanoi and Taipei city of Chinese Taiwan and between Hanoi and Hue city of the central province of Thua Thien-Hue.
The airline will conduct its flights everyday on the Hanoi-Taipei air route, with a flight duration of about three hours. Meanwhile, the daily flight route between Hanoi and Hue city will begin on Nov 1, with each flight taking about one hour and ten minutes.
