The budget carrier Vietjet inaugurated on Tuesday the first route connecting Can Tho and Quang Ninh, opening up opportunities to develop tourism and trade much more easily than ever between two major economic regions.

The inaugural flight has been welcomed by the Chairman of Can Tho City People’s Committee, Tran Viet Truong and the Acting Chairman of Quang Ninh Provincial People’s Committee, Cao Tuong Huy, and many leaders of related departments and agencies of the two provinces, tourism and travel companies, local people and visitors.

The first route connecting Can Tho and Quang Ninh will operate two return flights per week on Tuesdays and Saturdays.

With only 2 hours and 20 minutes of flight time per leg, Vietjet helps connects people and tourists from the capital of the southwest region to Quang Ninh.

Quang Ninh is the key economic region of the northeast, which owns the world’s natural heritage Ha Long Bay, while Can Tho possesses river landscapes and gardens, as well as large agricultural areas.

The new route makes it easier for the transportation of goods and fresh seafood from the west to Van Don, Mong Cai border gate (Quang Ninh) and vice versa. — VNS
