Budget carrier Vietjet plans to open two domestic routes connecting Phu Quoc Island and Da Nang, Van Don and two international ones linking the Kien Giang Province’s island with Chengdu and Chongqing (China).

This information was delivered by the airline during the Kien Giang Investment Promotion Conference which opened here on Monday in the presence of Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, senior State leaders and representatives from ministries, organisations as well as domestic and international investors.

The Phu Quoc–Da Nang and Phu Quoc-Van Don routes will be operated from the end of this year and the middle of next year, respectively, with a frequency of seven flights per week.

Meanwhile, two new international routes – Phu Quoc–Chengdu and Phu Quoc– Chongqing – will be launched from the end of this year with three round-trip flights per week.

Vietjet said it will increase the frequency of two operating international routes linking Phu Quoc with Hong Kong and Incheon to six flights per week and 14 flights per week, respectively, this winter to meet the rising demand of passengers.

Since the first flight to Phu Quoc in 2012, Vietjet has continuously expanded its flight network, connecting the island to many provinces, cities, and other countries in the region. That has helped connect trade and tourism to facilitate residents, tourists and investors to Phu Quoc and Kien Giang Province, while also contributing to speeding up local economic growth.

“With huge economic, tourism potential, Phu Quoc Island and Kien Giang Province is expected to become an economic leader of the southern region, an attractive destination for tourists and investors, especially when air transport becomes more convenient than ever with many new routes will be operated in the near future,” Vietjet said in a statement. — VNS
