Vietjet on Thursday officially commenced its latest international service connecting the coastal city of Da Nang with Tokyo’s Haneda International Airport, marking the airline’s fifth route between the two countries.

This is the first direct service between Da Nang and Haneda, the busiest airport in Japan, and one of Asia’s most bustling transport hubs, Vietjet said in a statement.

The Da Nang-Tokyo route operates daily return services with a flight time of approximately five hours and thirty minutes. The flight departs Da Nang at 6.10pm and lands in Tokyo at 1am; the return flight departs from Tokyo at 2.30am and arrives in Da Nang at 6.40pm (all local times).

“Together with our four other routes between these two countries, and the expansive domestic and international networks we offer, the new service will further complete Vietjet’s growing connections between Viet Nam and Japan,” said Vietjet Vice President Nguyen Duc Thinh.

The new route will help travellers from Japan easily discover phenomenal destinations in central Viet Nam such as Da Nang, the ancient town of Hoi An, the former imperial citadel in Hue City, Quang Binh, and many more wonderful places in Viet Nam and across the Asian region, he said.

In return, travellers and local people in central Viet Nam can now fly directly to Japan and other destinations throughout the world via Haneda without having to transit in other big cities, he added.

As part of the airline's ongoing promotion, tickets priced from zero dong are available every Saturday until March 31, 2020. These discounted airfares apply to all five routes to Japan including Ha Noi and HCM City to Tokyo (Narita) and Osaka.

The flight time for the promotion is at least 30 days after booking (excluding public holidays). — VNS
