Vietnam Airlines will provide three flights a week on its new route connecting the central coastal city of Da Nang with the northeastern province of Quang Ninh from November 1, the national flag carrier announced on Monday.

This is the second domestic route linked to Van Don airport run by Vietnam Airlines, following the HCM City-Van Don route, it said, adding that the move will contribute greatly to promoting Quang Ninh Province’s trade and tourism cooperation with other localities, while helping complete the airline’s network.

The carrier uses the Airbus A321 with four-star international standards for the flights, which are expected to bring more visitors to Da Nang City and vice versa.

Vietnam Airlines is offering promotional fares starting from VND199,000 (US$8.6) (excluding taxes and fees) for customers buying tickets from October 25 to November 10. The cheap fares apply for journeys from November 1 to December 31.

Tickets can be purchased online at, Vietnam Airlines mobile application, and at ticket offices and official agents nationwide.

Earlier last week, the airline won three awards at a ceremony held in Phu Quoc Island, Kien Giang Province.

The Asia’s Leading Airline - Economy Class, Asia's Leading Airline - Premium Economy Class, and Asia's Leading Airline - Brand awards were parts of the World Travel Awards (WTA) in 2019 which honour the best service providers in travel and tourism across the globe.

“This is the fourth consecutive year that Vietnam Airlines has been recognised by the World Travel Awards in both Asia and global categories," Nguyen Hong Linh, the airline's Executive Vice President said.

Linh added the awards showed the recognition of the international community and customers alike for the carrier's continuous improvement. — VNS
