ĐÀ NẴNG — International tourists to Đà Nẵng will be presented with Vinaphone 4G data SIM cards upon arrival at the airport as part of the central city’s “Enjoy Danang” programme that aims to offer 50,000 free SIM cards to foreign visitors from April to June.
With each free SIM card, visitors will have 2GB of data and 1,000 minutes for 30 days.
Nguyễn Thị Hoài An, Director of the Đà Nẵng Tourism Promotion Agency, said the gift aims to leave a good first impression on foreign tourists at the start of their visit.
Pieter Balkenende, a tourist from the Netherlands, said the gift was a pleasant surprise that would be helpful during his first week-long trip to the central tourist destination.
On April 20, 150 passengers arriving in the city via Singapore Airlines and Vietjet Air flights were the first to receive the free SIM cards.
On March 27, the Đà Nẵng International Terminal Investment and Operation Joint Stock Company and the city’s Department of Tourism held an event to welcome the resumption of international flights to the city, which marked the reopening of the international terminal at Đà Nẵng International Airport.
Since then, the airport has welcomed 29 international flights with 2,560 passengers. The airport soon expects 41 flights per week from Singapore, Japan, Thailand and Malaysia. — VNS
