VOV.VN - Bamboo Airways launched a direct air route on February 17 between Rach Gia in the southern province of Kien Giang to Phu Quoc Island, with the route featuring three flights per week.
Moving forward, the new direct air service is anticipated to contribute to reducing the travel time from Rach Gia to Phu Quoc to just 20 minutes, as opposed to the previous time of 2.5 hours via high-speed boat.
The latest route will make use of the Embraer aircraft, creating favourable conditions in which passengers can travel faster.
It will also mark one of the shortest domestic routes, which is approximately 120 km long.
Previously, the route had been operated by Vasco on ATR-72 aircraft, with a flight time of roughly 40 minutes. However, Vasco was forced to halt operating the route back in 2016 due to a lack of economic efficiency.
