HÀ NỘI — National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines (VNA) will work with the Việt Nam Air Service Company (VASCO) to operate two daily flights connecting Hà Nội and Quảng Bình Province from May 29, the carrier announced on Thursday.
The VNA flights, using Airbus A321s, will take off at 6:30am from Hà Nội and 8:30am from Đồng Hới City.
Meanwhile, passengers on ATR72 aircraft, operated by VASCO, will leave Hà Nội at 2:30pm and Đồng Hới at 4:30pm.
Promotional air fares on the route, priced from VNĐ299,000 (US$13.2), are available for flights departing between May 29, 2017 and March 31, 2018.
Earlier in March, Vietnam Airlines transferred the Hà Nội-Đồng Hới air route to VASCO to operate seven round trips per week, using the 68-seat ATR72 aircraft. The move is part of Vietnam Airlines Corporation’s plan to improve operational efficiency of its subordinate airlines -- Vietnam Airlines, VASCO and Jetstar Pacific Airlines -- and expand VASCO’s business to meet increasing demand.
Vietnam Airlines has, so far, transferred the HCM City- Rạch Giá-Phú Quốc, HCM City-Phú Quốc-Cần Thơ and Hà Nội-Điện Biên flights to VASCO. Meanwhile, air routes between Hà Nội/HCM City-Tuy Hòa and HCM City-Chu Lai were transferred to Jetstar Pacific Airlines. —VNS
