New Vietjet flight links Ho Chi Minh City with Van Don Island district

0a1a-154

Continuing in the hype of the New Year’s celebrations, Vietjet officially welcomed a new service linking Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) with Van Don. The new route now connects the largest city of Vietnam with the attractive islands of Quang Ninh Province, meeting high demands for air transportation, travel and trade for locals and tourists alike, as well as contributing to trade and integration within Vietnam and the region.

Situated in the Quang Ninh Province, the new route will also serve as a direct gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Ha Long Bay located 50km away and approximately a 60-minute ride from the newly opened Van Don International Airport. A popular destination for travelers from around the world, the bay, which consist of over 1,600 islands and islets that form a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars, is famous for its ocean karst topography.

The jubilant opening ceremony was held at the Van Don International Airport, in which passengers on board the inaugural flight were greeted with exclusive gifts, floral garlands and a warm Vietjet welcome.

The HCMC – Van Don route now operates return flights every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, with a flight time of approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes per leg. The flight departs from HCMC at 7:00am and arrives in Van Don at 9.15am. The return flight takes off from Van Don at 9.50am and lands in HCMC at 12.05pm. All are in local time.
