After its rapid expansion was curtailed when the pandemic hit, ambitious LCC VietJet Air has this year shown strong growth to surpass its capacity offered pre-COVID. The carrier, which has 200 Boeing 737 MAX family aircraft on order, hit just under 2.5 million departure seats in May 2022, a new record, and is set to eclipse this with 2.7 million in June.

VietJet will be among the airlines from across Asia and beyond taking part in Routes Asia 2022 in Da Nang, Vietnam from 6-8 June.
