The move aims to stimulate domestic tourism demand and comes in response to the scheme "Vietnamese people travel in Vietnam" following its launch by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
At present, it appears that Vietnam Airlines has enjoyed a complete bounce back following the novel coronavirus epidemic by running an average of approximately 320 flights per day. The additional flight paths have served to increase the total number of the airline’s domestic routes to 57.
The latest air services will begin operation in July with the Da Nang - Phu Quoc route featuring four round-trip flights per week, departing from Da Nang at 9:00 and from Phu Quoc at 11:25 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
Elsewhere, the Danang - Thanh Hoa air route is expected to operate three round-trip flights per week, departing from Da Nang at 9:00 and from Thanh Hoa at 10:50 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays.
The Da Lat - Hue route will see a frequency of four weekly round-trip flights departing from Da Lat at 12:40 and from Hue at 14:35 on Mondays, Wednesday, Fridays, and Sundays.
The Da Lat - Thanh Hoa route will feature three weekly return flights departing from Da Lat at 12:40 and from Thanh Hoa at 15:05 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
The Can Tho - Da Lat route will run three weekly return flights departing from Can Tho at 12:00 and from Da Lat at 13:50 on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays
To mark the launch of these new routes, Vietnam Airlines will be offering preferential prices from only VND69,000 for a one-way ticket excluding taxes and fees.
In addition, in order to stimulate domestic tourism demand, Vietnam Airlines will continue to apply special rates for air routes such as Hai Phong - Can Tho, Vinh - Can Tho, Hai Phong - Buon Me Thuot, and Can Tho - Buon Me Thuot.
The programme will be applicable to customers who purchase their tickets via the website www.vietnamairlines.com, or through the airline’s ticket offices and agents between now and July 15, with the departure time being valid until December 31.
