According to the Executive Board’s report from the AGM, 2019 continued to reveal the airline’s strong growth and sustainable development with positive business results. 2019 also marked an important milestone in the new-age carrier’s journey as the airline celebrated transporting 100 million passengers.
2019 Milestones and Achievements
In 2019, Vietjet commenced its operations in India which led to the intercultural exchange of tourists from both the nations. It launched two routes Hanoi – New Delhi and Ho Chi Minh – New Delhi which opened up trade and tourism opportunities. The new routes helped boost the economies of both countries while connecting India to Vietjet’s expansive flight network across Southeast Asia (Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and many more ASEAN countries) and East Asia (South Korea, Japan, China).
In 2019, the audited air transport revenue reached VND 41,252 billion (approx. INR 13.46 Crores) and VND 3,869 billion (approx. INR 12.63 Crores) in profit before tax, an increase of 22% and 27% respectively compared to 2018. Vietjet’s consolidated pre-tax revenue and profit in 2019 were VND 50,603 billion (approx. 16.52 Crores) and VND 4,569 billion (approx. 14.83 Crores) respectively.
Also in 2019, Vietjet added 34 new routes, increasing the flight network to 139 routes, which was composed of 44 domestic routes and 95 international routes, carrying more than 25 million passengers, reaching the accumulated transported passenger up to 100 million, creating a solid base for Vietjet’s post-pandemic rebound.
In the same year, Vietjet Aviation Academy continued to invest, aware that expansion will play a critical role in the airline’s sustainable development plan. The airline’s academy is now one of the region’s leading modern-scale, specialized institutions for aviation training.
Vietjet was also honored by prestigious awards in 2019 such as ASEAN’s Best Aviation Enterprise Award from ASIAN-BAC. The airline was also named ‘Asia Pacific Low-Cost Carrier of the Year’ by CAPA and one of Vietnam’s 50 best-listed companies in 2019 by Forbes. The airline was also listed in the Top 50 airlines for healthy financing and operations for the second consecutive year by AirFinance Journal.
These successes achieved in 2019 have helped Vietjet become a major airline that has significantly contributed to the development of Vietnam’s aviation industry and the national and global economic recovery.
