DA NANG (Biz Hub) — Travel firm Viettravel is offering direct charter flights between Da Nang and Bangkok on Thai Vietjet with one-way tickets priced at VND2.49 million (US$119).

The first charter flight between the central city and the Thai capital seeks to boost tourism between the region and Thai destinations.

The first flight, a 180-seat Airbus A321 aircraft, left Da Nang International Airport yesterday with 150 tourists on board.

It's scheduled to every five days.

Doan Hai Dang, the director of Viettravel's Da Nang branch, said the direct flight would help passengers from Da Nang avoid transiting in Ha Noi or HCM City.

Da Nang, which is connected by 19 international routes, attracted two million tourists in the first six months this year, of whom 600,000 were foreigners, a 25 per cent year-on-year rise. — VNS
