The national flag carrier, Vietnam Airlines, will launch a direct air
route between central Da Nang city and the Republic of Korea (RoK) city
of Incheon on July 1.

Chief Representative of the carrier’s RoK
branch Cao Anh Son announced the plan in Seoul on May 30 on the
sidelines of the 26 th Korean World Tourism Forum (KWTF).

Using Airbus A321, the carrier will provide three two-way direct
flights on the route on every Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

According to Son, this is one of the carrier’s efforts in meeting travel demand of the two countries’ passengers.

Last year, Vietnam Airlines’ RoK branch catered for 640,000 passengers
travelling between the two countries, accounting for 20 percent of the
carrier’s international passengers and up 6 percent from 2011, Son
noted.

Vietnamese Ambassador to the RoK Tran Trong Toan
highlighted the significance of the Da Nang-Incheon direct route, seeing
it as a follow-up of the celebrations of the 20 th anniversary of the
two countries’ diplomatic ties and the Vietnam-RoK Friendship Year.

On the occasion, representatives from the central region’s travel
agents introduced attractive tourist destinations, traditional food and
various services to RoK people and press agencies.-VNA
