Bamboo Airways launches first direct flight from Hanoi to Tianjin
VOV.VN - Vietnamese carrier Bamboo Airways has launched the first direct flight route between Hanoi and Tianjin, with flights running between Noi Bai International Airport in the Vietnamese capital and China’s Tianjin Binhai International Airport.
The first flights on the Hanoi - Tianjin route carried hundreds of passengers on two flights coded QH9732 and QH9733 with a flight time of three hours.
According to insiders, the direct flights are expected to contribute to meeting the passengers' travel demand and accelerating economic recovery and bilateral exchange across multiple fields between the two countries.
Moving forward, Bamboo Airways plans to launch round-trip flights from Hanoi to Tianjin with a frequency of one flight per week every Tuesday.
Hoang Ngoc Thach, deputy chief commercial officer of Bamboo Airways, expressed his hope that return flights will also help to enhance tourism exchanges, thereby further tightening the linkages between the two cities, as well as paving the way for operating regular air routes between the two countries in the near future.
With direct flights going to one of China's major cities, Bamboo Airways has proved its efforts in connecting the country with key Asian markets after launching a series of flights to Japan, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan (China), Thailand, and Singapore recently.
