Despite already chartering flights, Vietravel will enter a fiercely competitive airline market which already has six key players: Vietnam Airlines, Vietjet, Jetstar Pacific, Bamboo Airways, VASCO và the newly-created military-owned Vietstar Airlines.

Despite Vietravel’s three tourism branches handling 70% fewer passengers than 2019, Mr Ky says his airline will mainly carry people on Vietravel package tours; they will also aim to make inroads into the highly competitive domestic market. In their first year of operation, Vietravel Airlines is planning to, and aiming to, carry over 1 million passengers.

“I think the market situation will remain very difficult until the beginning of 2022. The international aviation market will likely only return by autumn next year.”

The airline is currently hiring A320/A321 captains, instructors & first officers.
