Aero K, an airline of the Republic of Korea, and Đà Nẵng city’s Tourism Department on February 5 evening held a ceremony to launch a new route connecting the RoK’s Cheongju to the central city of Việt Nam.

According to the Korean carrier, Đà Nẵng is the first city in Việt Nam that Aero K has chosen to operate regular flights from Cheongju to Đà Nẵng with a frequency of one flight every day. The first flight is scheduled to depart from Cheongju at 10:05 pm on February 5 and land in Đà Nẵng at 00:45 am the next day. The return trip departs from Đà Nẵng at 2:15 am on the same day.

Deputy Director of the Đà Nẵng Tourism Promotion Centre Mai Thị Thanh Hải said that Aero K’s flights from Cheongju - Da Nang and vice versa will offer opportunities and choices for travellers of the two countries in general and two localities in particularly, especially during the coming Lunar New Year 2024.
