Vietnamese ‘bikini airline’ with sexy flight attendants launches new route | Travel News | Travel

An airline based in Vietnam has hit the headlines in recent years and has become known as ‘bikini airline’.

Otherwise called Vietjet Air, the airline is known for its saucy stunts featuring scantily clad women.

Since launching in 2011, the airline has published an annual calendar that features women in bikinis posing as cabin crew members such as flight attendants, pilots and ground staff.

The airline is to launch new flight route from Vietnam to India.

In 2012, the airline launched a stunt that caused controversy across the globe.

As part of a PR campaign, five flight attendants were dressed in bikinis whilst dancing for passengers mid-flight.

Due to not gaining permission from aviation authorities in Vietnam to allow it, the airline was fined 62,000 rupees (£678.20).

However, it hasn’t affected the airline in a negative way, having seen a 20 per cent increase in trading in 2017, according to the BBC.

It is thought that the airline could overtake the countries flag carrier Vietnam Airlines.

Known for being the budget carrier in Vietnam, similar to easyJet in the UK, the new flights will launch “very soon”, according to news agency IANS.

There are no current plans to connect to the UK, so passengers wanting the chance to see flight attendants in swimwear would need to head to Vietnam.

Until then, Britons will have to be served by flight attendants in more work-wear-like gear.

It isn’t the first time that bikini-clad women have attempted to take to the skies.

In China, thousands of women attended a beauty pageant in Qingdao in an attempt to become flight attendants.

They could then become the “Face of Oriental Beauty”, where they have to be at least five foot six in height.

They must also be “elegant, slim, have a sweet voice and have no scars in the exposed part of their skin”.
