The airline shall continue to put its effort toward this project and plan to add more green area in another urban cities throughout Thailand in the coming times.
Since the establishment of the Fly Green Fund, Thai Vietjet has consistently been carrying out a wide range of environmental projects and activities, including ‘Garbage Hunter’ – a project with the purpose of removing garbage from various locations in Thailand, and ‘Fly Green Charity Golf Day’ – the first charity golf tournament under Fly Green Fund.
