Quang Binh (VNA) – Jetstar Pacific commenced its low-cost service between the central province of Quang Binh and the northern port city of Hai Phong on April 29, offering more choices for passengers in the north central and northern coastal regions.

Before the inauguration started, the first flight between Hai Phong’s Cat Bi and Quang Binh’s Dong Hoi had landed at Dong Hoi airport.

This is the first time that Quang Binh and Hai Phong have set up an air route with low-cost services to meet the travelling demand of people between the two regions.

The carrier will conduct three round-trip flights a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday using 180-seat Airbus 320 aircraft.

The flights from Hai Phong will depart at 17:35 while the return leg will take off at 19:10.

The total flight duration will be one hour.

Quang Binh is scheduled to coordinate with Jetstar Pacific to launch an air route to Chiang Mai (Thailand) in June 2017, which will be the first direct route between Vietnam and Chiang Mai.-VNA
