To boost Vietnam’s Da Nang presence across the subcontinent, the Vietjet airline announced on June 27 that it will connect five Indian cities to the coastal city. The airline will connect New Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, and Bengaluru with the Vietnamese coastal city Da Nang.
The new services will start within the third quarter of 2022 with four to seven return flights per week, the airline said in a statement.
Vietjet currently operates four services between Vietnam and India, including New Delhi/Mumbai – Hanoi and New Delhi/Mumbai – Ho Chi Minh City.
It has already announced its plans to launch two more routes, connecting New Delhi and Mumbai with the island city of Phu Quoc in September 2022.
The announcement to commence five new routes was recently made at the Da Nang Investment Forum 2022, Vietjet said.
The event also marks Vietjet’s announcement to incorporate Da Nang’s tourism symbol on its fleet to promote the city globally.
“Vietjet believes that the new routes announced today (June 27) will continue to contribute to opening more opportunities, promoting economic, trade, and business investment between Da Nang and other Vietnamese cities and regional destinations,” said Vietjet Vice President Nguyen Thanh Son.
Da Nang is one of Vietnam’s most attractive destinations for international tourists.
Vietjet has transported nearly 22 million passengers from and to Da Nang so far and currently operates eight domestic and five international routes from and to the coastal city, he said.
With many positive activities and connections with Da Nang along Vietnam’s ‘Central heritage road,’ Vietjet has constantly opened more routes, offering more flight options with diversified flight schedules and a happy experience for passengers on its new and modern fleet, the airline said.
