VOV.VN - Air Seoul, a low-cost Korean carrier and a subsidiary of Asiana Airlines, reopened its direct air route from Incheon to Cam Ranh City in the central coastal province of Khanh Hoa on June 24.
187 passengers onboard flight RS525, which departed from Incheon International Airport were welcomed by local authorities immediately upon arrival at Cam Ranh International Airport.
According to Le Thi Hong Minh, general director of Cam Ranh International Terminal Joint Stock Company (CRTC), this represents the second Korean airline to re-operate the Republic of Korea (RoK)- Cam Ranh route. This clear shows signs of recovery for the tourism market for Korean travelers to the province.
Lee Jungmi, chief representative of Air Seoul in Khanh Hoa province, said that after the flight the airline will operate four flights a week to Cam Ranh running on Monday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday.
The RoK carrier plans to launch regular flights to the Vietnamese province ahead in late July with a frequency of four flights per week and one flight per day in late August.
Cung Quynh Anh, deputy director of the Khanh Hoa Department of Tourism, noted that the RoK is a potential tourist market for the province and the restoration of this market is therefore highly significant to the coastal city.
He added that local tourism firms must offer new products and services to attract more domestic and international customers. In particular, tourism products which attract Korean tourists include golf courses, food courts at hotels, and exclusive tours.
