Can Tho-Danang Flight to be Launched from July 22, 2014

Category: Travel Tips & Guides, Vietnam

VietJet Air is set to launch a new flight connecting the central city of Danang with the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho on July 22, 2014. It will be the first airline to connect the two cities.

There will be three round-trip flights per week. The 90-minute flight is scheduled to depart from Danang at noon and return from Can Tho at 2 pm.

The Mekong Delta is a popular tourist destination of Vietnam with its charming floating markets and scenes of daily life revolving about the river. Can Tho is at the center of Mekong Delta, being a great base for exploring the more remote parts of the delta. However, as Can Tho International Airport currently only operates flights to Hanoi, Phu Quoc Island and Con Dao islands, as well as international flights to Taiwan (China) during the Tet (Lunar New Year) holiday. Tourists who want to head to Danang after touring Mekong Delta often need to travel back to Ho Chi Minh City and that often means one more night in HCMC and several hours on road.

The opening of flight between Danang and Can Tho would increase the actual visit time without entailing extra costs in time or budget, and thus help strengthen the demand for round-Vietnam tourism.
