Vietnam low-cost carrier Vietjet Air is boosting its international network from Da Nang.
From July, the carrier says it will launch services to seven new destinations from the country’s third largest city: Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Busan, Hyderabad, Mumbai, New Delhi, and Singapore.
“Da Nang is one of Vietnam’s most attractive destinations for international tourists,” says Vietjet vice president Nguyen Thanh Son.
He notes that the carrier presently operates eight domestic and five international routes from the city.
The services will be operated from July, with frequencies ranging from four-times-weekly to daily.
“Vietjet believes that the new routes announced today will continue to contribute to opening more opportunities, promoting economic, trade and business investment between Da Nang and other Vietnamese cities and regional destinations,” adds Nguyen.
In a bid to reboot tourism, Vietnam has dropped travel restrictions imposed during the coronavirus pandemic.
On 22 June Vietjet said that in September it will launch services from the resort island of Phu Quoc to Mumbai and New Delhi.
Services from Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi to Mumbai commenced in early June.
Vietjet did not specify an aircraft type for the new services. Cirium fleets data indicates that it operates 69 aircraft, of which 67 are Airbus A320 family narrowbodies.
