In a major milestone for Sydney Airport, the Australian hub today welcomed its 50th airline with Vietjet’s inaugural service from Ho Chi Minh City arriving this morning.
This is the highest number of airlines flying regular scheduled passenger services the airport has ever seen in its 103-year history.

Flight VJ85 touched down in Sydney this morning with nearly 400 passengers onboard. Vietjet will be offering three return services a week from Ho Chi Minh City a week on its A330-300 fleet.

Sydney Airport now has four airlines flying to Vietnam, a rapidly growing tourist market which attracted more than 317,000 Australian travellers in 2019.

In total, Sydney Airport has now onboarded six new airlines over the last 12 months and existing airlines have returned and are continuing to increase capacity, providing great opportunities and choice for the travelling public.
