THỪA THIÊN-HUẾ — Authorities of the central province of Thừa Thiên-Huế have suggested increasing flight frequency on the Huế-Bangkok route, at a meeting held last week with Jetstar airline and travel agencies.
Representatives of travel agencies supported the proposal, agreeing that the frequency should be increased to two flights a week immediately instead of the current two flights a month, as it would help fully exploit the tourism potential of Huế, a cultural heritage site.
Jetstar reported that flights between Huế and Bangkok have an average occupancy of 70 per cent.
The provincial People’s Committee has asked concerned agencies and departments to create favourable conditions to enable more flights and has promised to introduce support policies for travel agencies and firms to promote tours so as to attract more tourists on the Huế-Bangkok route. — VNS
