“We are proud to officially present the very first charity run event under Thai Vietjet’s Fly Green Fund. As an air transportation service provider, Thai Vietjet has made continuous contributions to the sustainability of environmental protection, such as reducing pollution from daily operations and implementing numerous environmental protection measures that lessen the root causes of the global warming issue that humanity has been facing with. This year, we are stepping up our game with the introduction of the Fly Green Charity Run, in which we invite the public to take part in the fund-raising running event and be part of the environment protection with the Seub Nakhasathein Foundation,” said Mr. Woranate Laprabang, Chief Executive Officer of Thai Vietjet.
