CẦN THƠ – Two direct international flights connecting Cần Thơ City to Kuala Lumpur and Bangkok will begin operating in the second quarter this year, according to Trần Việt Phường, director of Cần Thơ City’s Culture, Sports and Tourism Department.
Both routes will be operated by Malaysian budget airline AirAsia.
The route connecting Cần Thơ City and Kuala Lumpur will be launched on April 8, and the Cần Thơ – Bangkok (Thailand) route will start on May 2.
The new flights are expected to attract more tourists from ASEAN-member countries as well as from India and Australia as AirAsia has many connecting flight routes.
