Vietnam Airlines resumes Hanoi-Busan air route

VOV.VN - National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines has launched flights to restart the Hanoi-Busan air route, thereby becoming the first foreign airline to operate flights to Gimhae International Airport in Busan since the Republic of Korea (RoK) imposed restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Flight VN426 departing from Hanoi landed safely in Busan at 7:59 a.m. (local time), carrying 148 passengers onboard, while flight VN427 departed from Busan at 11:57 a.m., transporting a total of 175 passengers.

Being the first international carrier to operate a flight to Gimhae International Airport in Busan in the post-COVID-19 pandemic, Vietnam Airlines has affirmed its role as a long-standing airline that has a strong position within the Korean market.

At present, Vietnam Airlines operates the Hanoi-Busan route with a frequency of three flights per week, with flights every Monday, Tuesday, and Friday.

As of July, the carrier will reopen the Ho Chi Minh-Busan air route with four flights per week, while simultaneously planning to operate daily flights from Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, and Nha Trang to Seoul.

In a bid to meet the travel demand of passengers in the post-pandemic period, Vietnam Airlines has put the modern wide-body Boeing 787 aircraft into service on these routes.

Tickets for air routes between the nation and the RoK are now widely available and on sale on Vietnam Airlines' website, mobile apps, ticketing offices, and official agents.
