Vietjet and the People’s Committee of Da Nang City have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for five-year strategic cooperation to support the development and contribute to the socio-economic development of Viet Nam and Da Nang.

The MoU was inked last week at the Da Nang Investment Forum 2022 under the presence of Prime Minister Pham Minh Chinh.

From now until 2027, Vietjet will coordinate to promote the image of Da Nang to domestic and international tourists and promote trade, tourism, and investment in the city.

Vietjet will also paint the tourism brand of Da Nang on the aircraft to bring the image of the city to all countries and destinations the airline has flown to while teaming up with Da Nang in stimulus events and investment conferences.

On the sideline of the forum, Vietjet also announced the opening of seven new international routes from Da Nang to Singapore, South Korea and India, the first step in its commitment to cooperate with the city.

The routes connecting Da Nang to Busan and the five largest cities in India - New Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, and Bangalore - together with Singapore will operate from July with four to seven return flights per week, Vietjet said in a statement.

"Da Nang is one of the most attractive destinations for international tourists in Viet Nam. Vietjet has to date transported nearly 22 million passengers on eight domestic and five international routes flying from and to the city," Vietjet Vice President Nguyen Thanh Son said.

"Vietjet believes that the new routes announced today will continue to contribute to opening more opportunities, promoting economic, trade and business investment between Da Nang and other cities, countries in the region." — VNS
