Vietnam Airlines has added a new route connecting Ho Chi Minh City and Quang Ninh province via Van Don International Airport, starting 30 December 2018.

The daily service will be operated on Airbus A321 and will depart from Tan Son Nhat International Airport at 14:00h and from Van Don International Airport at 16:45h with a flight time of around two hours and five minutes.

The new service will provide additional capacity to meet increasing tourism, business and trade demand, as well as enhancing connectivity between the South and Northeast of Vietnam: Ho Chi Minh City – the country’s largest economic center and financial hub – and Quang Ninh province and nearby provinces. Quang Ninh is soon to become the special economic zone of Vietnam.

In preparation for this, Vietnam Airlines has provided new onground equipment, airport check-in system, suitable facility and infrastructure as well as intensive staff training, which it said ensures a “seamless and secure journey and therefore luring more tourists into this growing market”.
