VGP - Low-cost Jetstar Pacific airline and the Quang Binh provincial People’s Committee have announced the future opening of two new air routes: Dong Hoi-Chiang Mai (Thailand) and Dong Hoi-Haiphong at a recent working session.
As planned, the Dong Hoi-Hai Phong flights will begin on late May twice a week while the Dong Hoi-Chiang Mai flights will start in June.
It will take two hours to travel from Chiang Mai to Quang Binh by air, instead of two days by road as in the past.
The new air routes will attract more Thai visitors to Vietnamese northern provinces. Meanwhile, flights between Dong Hoi and Hai Phong will make travel from central Viet Nam to Hai Phong and other northern provinces easier.
Chairman of the Quang Binh provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Huu Hoai pledged to create the best possible conditions for Jetstar Pacific Airlines to facilitate the two new air routes and asked travel agents and relevant agencies to join hands in promoting the flights.
Hoai hopes that the new flights will help attract more visitors to the province.
Thai visitors now pay special attention to Viet Nam's tourist sites and Thailand, particularly Chiang Mai, is also an attractive destination for many Vietnamese travellers.
