Hanoi (VNA) – Japan's All Nippon Airways (ANA), last week announced that it will double the frequency of its flights between Narita and HCM City to two flights per day from October 30, 2016.

ANA's current schedule consists of a single daily flight operating between the two airports, leaving Narita in the evening and returning to Narita in the morning.

The additional HCM City flight will depart from Narita at night, and arrive in the evening.

The airline, the largest in Japan, said this would greatly improve convenience for passengers travelling between the two cities, especially those transiting both to and from flights between Narita and North America – a route of high passenger demand.

As a result of this increased frequency, the number of US cities accessible from Narita within three hours of arrival from HCM City will increase from four to 10.-VNA
