HCM CITY Vietjet on Thursday commenced its latest international route connecting Đà Lạt – the famous tourist destination in Việt Nam’s Central Highlands and Seoul – the capital city of South Korea, in a move to expand its network to Northeast Asia.
The airline offers four return flights weekly on the newest route. The flight departs from Đà Lạt at 5.10pm and arrives in 11.55pm (local time) while the return flight takes off from Seoul’s Incheon airport at 2.30am (local time) and lands in Đà Lạt at 5.50am.
The Đà Lạt-Seoul route in addition to newly-launched Cần Thơ-Seoul air service will bring new journeys for locals in the Central Highlands and Mekong Delta of Việt Nam to visit the famous destination and big transport hub of Asia, said Vietjet vice president Nguyễn Thanh Sơn.
South Korea’s beautiful capital Seoul has always been a popular destination for tourists thanks to its developed entertainment industry, traditional cultural features, and numerous shopping centres. Incheon International Airport is also one of Asia’s major transport hubs with dense connections to the Americas and Europe.
Meanwhile, as the capital city of Lâm Đồng Province, Đà Lạt is famous for its beautiful landscapes with surrounding forests, a romantic touch thanks to its lakes, valleys and waterfalls and year-round cool weather. The “flower city” is not only a perfect place for a honeymoon, but also well-loved by young people for weekend get-aways and a popular destination for couples and families.
With the two newest routes, Vietjet now has 11 direct routes, 480 flights per month, operating the most flights connecting Việt Nam and South Korea, including Hà Nội/HCM City/Hải Phòng/Đà Nẵng/ Nha Trang/Phú Quốc/Cần Thơ/Đà Lạt-Seoul, besides Hà Nội/Nha Trang-Busan and Đà Nẵng-Daegu.
The new routes will not only meet the increased demand for air travel, but also contribute to the development of tourism, trading and cultural exchanges between the two countries and the region, Vietjet said in a statement. — VNS
