The Vietnamese airline Vietjet has launched an exclusive Power Pass, which allows passengers to take unlimited domestic flights around the country for the next 12 months. The pass offers unprecedented flexibility for flights, unlimited changes to itineraries and the option to plan travels up to a year ahead.
The Power Pass has been offered in response to the current COVID-19 situation, in which many travellers are dissuaded from booking flights due to uncertainty over their future plans. Many visitors currently in Vietnam also require a more flexible approach to travel, as flights are required at short notice and changes are commonplace, as flyers respond to government travel restrictions and the ever-changing global situation.
A Power Pass account offers passengers a range of incentives for domestic travel in Vietnam. These include free air ticket fares, 15kg checked baggage and 7kg hand luggage on an unlimited number of domestic flights throughout the validity of the pass. In addition, travellers can change their flight schedule as many times as necessary for only VND100,000 (US$4) per change. The Power Pass from Vietjet will be available for an unlimited number of domestic flights up until 2021.
The airline offers two payment options: the short-term Power Pass Sky6 (VND8,999,000) for unlimited domestic flights until the end of 30th September, 2020; or the longer Power Pass Sky12 (VND16,999,000), which is valid for unlimited domestic flights up to the end of 31st March, 2021. Both passes are available to buy on powerpass.vietjetair.com or vietjetair.com.
