Vietjet Air headerVietnamese LCC Vietjet Air is hoping to expand into long-haul LCC operations, provided it can find the right aircraft and suitable airline partners to provide reciprocal feed.

“Long-haul is definitely one of our key strategies. We are very serious about looking at the options, and we have done some deep analyses on our end,” said Vietjet Air Deputy Director Commercial Jay L Lingeswara. “We need the right aircraft, the right partners to work with, and we need the right cabin configuration to launch a successful low-cost, long-haul operation.”

According to Lingeswara, Vietjet Air’s long-haul target markets would be Australia, Europe, and direct US flights.
