A Bamboo Airways flight carrying 144 Korean passengers arrived at Phu Cat airport in the central province of Binh Dinh on Saturday, marking the beginning of the airport’s international service.

Bamboo Airways will operate eight direct flights to and from South Korean's Cheongju international airport this month.

Ho Quoc Dung, chairman of the Binh Dinh People’s Committee, described the route as a good opportunity for his province to connect with the world, attracting more international holiday-makers and investors to the locality.

Covering nearly 3,000sq.m, the T2 terminal of Phu Cat airport is capable of receiving 600,000 international passengers a year.

Deputy General Director of Bamboo Airways Truong Phuong Thanh said with its strategy to increase domestic and international flights from and to Binh Dinh through Phu Cat airport, the airline hoped to contribute to developing the transport network in the locality and in the central region as well.

It would also strive to offer quality air services to all customers, he added.

The direct route between Phu Cat and Cheongju airports is the fourth between Viet Nam and South Korea provided by Bamboo Airways, with flights to and from Ha Noi, Da Nang and Cam Ranh to Incheon.— VNS
