Korean Air has launched a direct flight to connect Da Nang with Busan, Korea, offering 21 flights per week between the two cities.

The airline said the route’s first flight landed at Da Nang International Airport at midnight on October 29.

It said the new route, which uses the Boeing B737-900, will help meet the increasing demand of tourists from Korea to visit the central city.

Korean Air alone operates 20 flights linking cities in Viet Nam and Korea including two daily flights from Incheon to Da Nang.

Both Vietnamese and Korean budget airlines have operated flights between Korean cities and Da Nang since 2014.

Budget airline carrier Jeju Air also operates a route between Da Nang and Incheon, with a 189-seat Boeing B737-800 aircraft.

National flag carrier, Vietnam Airlines, has operated a Da Nang-Busan route, with two flights per week, since 2013. — VNS
