HA NOI (VNS)— Vietnam Airlines on April 5 will launch a direct flight between Moscow and Cam Ranh International Airport in the central coastal province of Khanh Hoa.
This is the first direct international route serving Cam Ranh since the airport was upgraded to the international level four years ago.
The route aims at drawing more Russian tourists to the country's central coastal region, said Luong Van Thanh, director of the Cam Ranh International Airport.
Vietnam Airlines plans to operate one flight every Friday, using Boeing 777s.
Charter flights from Russia's Far East to Cam Ranh have continuously increased over the past three years, with an average 7-8 flights per week in winter and at least one each week during the rest of the year, Thanh said.-VNS
