Tour operators will organize charter flights to bring international travelers to Phu Cat airport, said Tran Van Thanh, director of the provincial Department of Tourism. From there, he added the visitors will then be taken to rest at 5-star resorts on the Phuong Mai peninsula.
The provincial tourism sector has prepared about 2,000 5-star standard rooms on the Phuong Mai peninsula to serve international travelers on a trial basis. The health sector has also fully vaccinated 100% of local people against COVID-19.
Businesses and travel agencies examined ways of picking up guests, arranging accommodation facilities and designing tour programs, as well as devising troubleshooting plans just in case of COVID-19 infection.
It is expected that from now till April, Binh Dinh will receive two charter flights per week with about 2,000 guests from the Republic of Korea and Japan. If the pandemic is under control, international tourists can enter the inner city on a package tour.
