Vietjet has welcomed its first flight connecting Ho Chi Minh City and Van Don in Quang Ninh province on, at Van Don International Airport.
The latest route for the airline connects the largest city of Vietnam with the islands of the Quang Ninh province, the gateway to UNESCO World Heritage site of Ha Long Bay and other attractive destinations around the area.
As the world’s famous tourist destination with around 60 minutes by bus from the airport, Ha Long Bay includes some 1,600 islands and islets, forming a spectacular seascape of limestone pillars.
Because of their precipitous nature, most of the islands are uninhabited and unaffected by a human presence.
The site’s outstanding scenic beauty is complemented by its great biological interest.
The Ho Chi Minh City-Van Don route will operate on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday with a flight time of around two hours and 15 minutes per leg.
The flight departs from Ho Chi Minh City at 07:00 and arrives in Van Don at 09:15.
The return flight takes off at 09:50 and lands in Ho Chi Minh City at 12:05.
