National carrier Vietnam Airlines and authorities of the northern province of Quang Ninh signed a strategic co-operation agreement in Ha Long Bay on Monday.

Under the agreement, the two sides will help each other develop and promote tourism in Quang Ninh Province and popularise the image, products and services of Vietnam Airlines.

The province will set up special support policies for air routes to Van Don International Airport to increase the number of visitors to Quang Ninh and introduce the province to Europe, Australia and the northeast Asia region.

Meanwhile, Vietnam Airlines will expand its international and domestic air network from and to Van Don airport to meet the market’s demand. It will also co-ordinate with local authorities to promote investment and tourism, and take part in local and international cultural and tourism events in the province from 2018 to 2021.

As a coastal province in the North East of Viet Nam, Quang Ninh owns the world’s natural wonder Ha Long Bay. The province’s Van Don International Airport will be operational by 2018 to meet the travel demands of people.

Vietnam Airlines and Quang Ninh People’s Committee have jointly organised social activities to support the poor. In April last year, the carrier grew 50,000 trees in one coalfield of Quang Ninh Province. — VNS
