National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines (VNA) will work with the Viet Nam Air Service Company (VASCO) to operate two daily flights connecting Ha Noi and Quang Binh Province from May 29, the carrier announced on Thursday.

The VNA flights, using Airbus A321s, will take off at 6:30am from Ha Noi and 8:30am from Dong Hoi City.

Meanwhile, passengers on ATR72 aircraft, operated by VASCO, will leave Ha Noi at 2:30pm and Dong Hoi at 4:30pm.

Promotional air fares on the route, priced from VND299,000 (US$13.2), are available for flights departing between May 29, 2017 and March 31, 2018.

Earlier in March, Vietnam Airlines transferred the Ha Noi-Dong Hoi air route to VASCO to operate seven round trips per week, using the 68-seat ATR72 aircraft. The move is part of Vietnam Airlines Corporation’s plan to improve operational efficiency of its subordinate airlines -- Vietnam Airlines, VASCO and Jetstar Pacific Airlines -- and expand VASCO’s business to meet increasing demand.

Vietnam Airlines has, so far, transferred the HCM City- Rach Gia-Phu Quoc, HCM City-Phu Quoc-Can Tho and Ha Noi-Dien Bien flights to VASCO. Meanwhile, air routes between Ha Noi/HCM City-Tuy Hoa and HCM City-Chu Lai were transferred to Jetstar Pacific Airlines. —VNS
