Thua Thien-Hue (VNA) – The People’s Committee of the central province of Thua Thien-Hue has issued a decision stipulating several preferential policies to support the opening of new air routes to Phu Bai international airport in Hue city.

Specifically, the province will cover the cost of the introduction of the new routes as well as tourism programmes related to them on radio, television, internet, newspapers and mobile phones.

It will offer a 50-percent discount on tickets to tourist sites managed by the Hue Monuments Conservation Centre for passengers using the new air routes, as well as free bus tickets from Phu Bai airport to downtown Hue and vice versa.

Each airline will also receive support to open its representative office in the province.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Nguyen Van Cao said that these policies will benefit investors who pledge to maintain flights and have detailed plans in at least six months with the frequency of at least two flights per month.

They will be applied in one year for each investor, starting from the first flight it conducts to Phu Bai airport.

The Bangkok-Hue charter flight, launched on March 18 last year, will also benefit from the decision.-VNA
