New flights are expected to boost economic and tourism opportunities for both countries.
After an official visit by the General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam, Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong, to China to mark the 65th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the neighbouring nations, VietJet has made the timely decision to open several new direct flights to further increase their connection.
Speaking at the launch ceremony, National Assembly Vice Chairwoman Ms Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan said that economic cooperation and trade with other countries around the world is very important and air traffic is the key to supporting its development.
Representatives of the airline announced that it had opened new routes to several cities in China in order to meet the increasing demand for business trips as well as personal sojourns, with many Vietnamese citizens having family across the border.
The routes to China will depart from Nha Trang and Da Nang to a variety of cities such as Hang Chau and Con Minh. All information about the routes is constantly updated on the official website.
With a modern fleet of Airbus vehicles and a team of experienced pilots, the airline has served more than 10 million passengers with a frequency of 150 flights per day over the last three years.
Last month, the Khanh Hoa Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism held a working session with China Southern Airlines, where a representative of the airline said that it aims to launch direct flights from Quang Chau to Cam Ranh airport in Nha Trang, starting from April 28 with three flights a week.
