Indonesian budget airline AirAsia inaugurated a direct flight between Jakarta and Ho Chi Minh City on Friday.
It is the first airline to provide a direct flight between the two destinations.
It also marks the first flight for Indonesia AirAsia heading towards Vietnam, after AirAsia Berhad and Thai AirAsia already flying to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City; targeting a significant overall average load factor of 75-85 percent.
Indonesia AirAsia said it will have our flights between Jakarta and Ho Chi Minh City every week and expects to post seat occupancy of 70-80 percent in the beginning.
Indonesia AirAsia and Thai AirAsia are affiliates of Malaysia-based AirAsia Berhad, the largest budget airline in Southeast Asia.
