Air route to link Can Tho, Con Dao

CAN THO — A new air route linking the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho and Con Dao Island in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province was launched by the Civil Aviation Authority of Viet Nam, Vietnam Airlines and the Can Tho City People's Committee yesterday.

The new 200km air route is operated by Viet Nam Air Services Co (VASCO), a subsidiary of the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines.

Bui Ngoc Hoang, director of VASCO, said his company was operating four weekly flights on the Can Tho-Con Dao route on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, using the 65-seat ATR72-500 aircraft.

The new air service was expected to help promote tourism and pave the way for socio-economic development in the Mekong Delta, Hoang said.

VASCO is also operating the HCM City-Con Dao air service with 24 to 28 flights per week using ATR72-500 aircraft. — VNS
