Nghe An (VNA) – A new air route linking Vinh city in the central province of Nghe An to Thailand’s capital city of Bangkok was launched on June 8 with a ceremony at Vinh Airport. 

There will be from three to four flights each day on the new route.

Speaking at the ceremony, Nguyen Xuan Duong, Chairman of Nghe An’s People’s Committee, affirmed that the launch of the route will be of great significance to the province’s social-economic development.

It also opens up opportunities for boosting investment and social-economic development for the north central region.

The route will promote links among Nghe An, Thanh Hoa and Ha Tinh provinces in building local and international tourism products and marks a new step of development in localising Thailand-bound tours via direct flights from the province to Bangkok.-VNA
