As reported by Saigon Times, the carrier will operate one weekly flight on the HCMC-Seoul route on Wednesdays as of September 30, and the return leg of the flight will depart from Seoul every Wednesday from October 7.

Besides, Vietjet will operate more flights on the Hanoi-Seoul-HCMC route on September 29.

All Vietjet flights are operated in accordance with global standards and recommendations from the authorities, the World Health Organization, and the International Air Transport Association, aimed at ensuring the health and safety of passengers, the flight crew and the community.

Passengers departing from Vietnam or South Korea are required to possess a medical certificate with a negative Covid-19 test result taken within three days before departure and comply with the mandatory quarantine requirements of the host countries.

The South Korean Government demanded that passengers traveling to South Korea declare their medical information before departure and comply with the 14-day mandatory quarantine requirement at their residences or at paid quarantine facilities after entering the country.

Passengers arriving in Vietnam can register for paid quarantine services at hotels and lodging facilities appraised by the local authorities.
