Using Airbus A320 aircraft, frequency is four round-trip flights a week, on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. Flights depart Da Nang at 4.30pm and arrive in Phu Quoc at 6.25pm, and depart Phu Quoc at 7pm and arrive in Da Nang at 8.50pm.

The new flights provide greater convenience and shorter travel time to passengers travelling between the two destination, as a transit in Ho Chi Minh City was previously required. The route is part of Jetstar Pacific’s plans to expand its domestic flight network to meet increasing travel demand.

 Da Nang is a traditional destination of Jetstar Pacific. It also opened two new routes from the central city to north-central Vinh and Thanh Hoa cities, with a frequency of three flights per week and four flights per week, respectively.

 All three new domestic routes are connected to the flight networks of national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines, Jetstar Pacific, and the five-star Emirates, which travel to 185 destinations in 18 countries and territories around the world.

 The airline currently conducts seven domestic and international routes from Da Nang, including to Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Taiwan (China), and Hong Kong (China), with nearly 650 flights a month carrying some 120,000 passengers.

 According to the Da Nang City People’s Committee, it welcomed over 1.8 million tourists in the first quarter of 2019, including 876,000 foreigners, up 16.4 per cent and 31.2 per cent, respectively, over the same period last year.
