A privately-owned airline is giving away free seats in a massive flash sale that’s only going to last for 24 hours.
Travelers will have the chance to book international flights starting from $0 – literally zero dollars.
The airline in question is called VietJet, and is essentially Vietnam’s response to the likes of Ryanair, Wizzair or FlyDubai.
This explains part of the reasoning behind this incredible sale.
Low-cost airlines do flash sales all the time but this is something else.
We’ve seen $10, $5 or even $1 tickets before, but no other airline has ever offered $0 airfares in the past.
Also, the airline is based out of Vietnam but the flash sale applies to international destinations as well.
Among others, VietJet flies to Indonesia, South Korea, Japan, Australia and Malaysia.
If you’re thinking there must be a catch, well, you’re not entirely wrong.
Unfortunately, while the fare is indeed free, you’re still required to cover the cost of those pesky taxes and airport fees.
They vary depending on the airline you’re using, the airport you’re flying from and so on, but the good news is we’re not talking about a huge amount, usually between $20 and $50.
Even though VietJet is a low-cost airline, it does offer a certain level of luxury to customers who are willing to pay a bit more.
In addition to the base fare and the ‘Deluxe’ fare, the airline also has something called the ‘SkyBoss’ fare.
It includes checked baggage up to 50 kg, free access to luxury lounge and a private shuttle bus to the plane.
The 24-hour flash sale starts on September 9 one minute after midnight.
