If passengers wish to check in at the airport, they can do so at the company's check-in counters. These counters are open until 50 minutes before the departure of an international flight or 40 minutes before the departure of a domestic flight.

Awful experience with Vietjet. They rescheduled our 11.30 flight to 13.10, 2.5hrs before we were due to fly and then further delayed the flight twice. We didn’t board the plane until 17.35 and the only reason we were given for this was ‘late arrival of aircraft’.

You frighten travellers into buying expensive baggage and booking fees. These are not true and you should be ashamed.
