Fancy being wecomed aboard by bikini-clad airhostess?
It could soon be a reality, as Vietnam's low-cost airline VietJet Air, dubbed "bikini Airlines", will soon launch its operations in India.
As the name suggests, air hostesses of VietJet Air dress up in bikinis and swim suits unlike other airlines.
Run by a Vietnam's first woman billionaire, Nguyen Thi Phuong Thao, the airline plans to launch operations in India around July - August this year, with four flights per week from New Delhi to Ho Chi Minh City.
The timing of the launch coincides with the 45th anniversary of India-Vietnam diplomatic relationship and the 10th anniversary of a strategic partnership between the two countries.
VietJet announced its plan to connect India at the Vietnam-India Business Forum.
VietJet Air is also one of the most controversial airlines and has \drawn flak for for its ‘sexy’ marketing stunts.
The budget carrier has organised fashion shown abroad its flights featuring swimsuit-clad models and beauty pageant contestants — something the founder of now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines, Vijay Mallya, once known a the "king of good times" would have heartily endorsed, if he were not a fugitive in the UK.
