Da Nang receives record number of flights over two-year period

VOV.VN - The central city of Da Nang welcomed a total of 114 domestic and international flights on June 25, a record high figure over the past two years.

On average the central city welcomes nine international flights per day at present, a rather low figure compared to the pre-pandemic period, but that signals the recovery of the local aviation industry following the success of Routes Asia 2022 in early June, according to Da Nang International Airport.

Le Trung Chinh, head of the municipal government, said that the city has set the goal of restoring its aviation industry to levels seen in the pre-pandemic period within the next two years, with a primary focus on  potential markets such as the United States, Europe, the Middle East, India, and Southeast Asia.

The Da Nang Tourism Promotion Center reported since a number of airlines from Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand resumed flights to Da Nang in late March, the city has welcomed 300 flights and tens of thousands of tourists so far.

Korean Air, the largest airline and flag carrier of the Republic of Korea (RoK), recently restored flights to the coastal city, bringing 200 passengers on June 22 following a two-year hiatus caused by COVID-19.

Currently, Korean Air is operating two charter flights per week to Da Nang running on Wednesday and Saturday, It plans to launch regular flights to the central city as of July 27 with a frequency of one flight per day.
