Vietnam Air launches direct route to Nagoya

(30-07-2005)

HA NOI — The national carrier, Vietnam Airlines, officially opened direct flights from HCM City to Nagoya, Japan yesterday.

The airline will offer three flights a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, using B767-300ER planes. This is Vietnam Airlines’ fifth direct air route to Japan and its first to the Chubu region – Japan’s third largest economic hub after the Kanto (Tokyo) and Kansai (Osaka) regions.

The Chubu region is located in central Japan, which is a hub for various key industries, including iron, steel, petro-chemicals and electricity, as well as the headquarters of major industrial groups such as Toyota, Yamaha and Honda.

Vietnam Airlines already operates 21 flights to major cities in Japan every week, including four flights from Ha Noi to Tokyo, seven from HCM City to Tokyo, seven from HCM City to Osaka, and three from HCM City to Fukuoka. The airlines’ flight schedules for these routes are arranged flexibly to help passengers from Japan conveniently take flights to other destinations in Viet Nam, as well as to other countries.

The national carrier currently has the largest number of direct air routes and flights between Viet Nam and Japan. Last year, Vietnam Airlines carried 264,000 passengers to and from Japan, representing 57 per cent of the total number travelling on direct air routes between the two countries.

Presently, Vietnam Airlines Corporation is considering opening more new air routes to Myanmar, Indonesia, India, the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada. — VNS
