Hanoi (VNA) – The Vietnam Air Services Company (VASCO) will officially be authorised by the Vietnam Airlines Corporation to operate flights between Hanoi and Dong Hoi city in central Quang Binh province from March 26.

Accordingly, VASCO, a subordinate company of the Vietnam Airlines Corporation, will be responsible for operating all seven round trips on the Hanoi-Dong Hoi route per week, using 68-seat ATR-72 aircraft.

The transfer is part of the corporation’s plan to improve the efficiency of operation of its subordinate airlines, Vietnam Airlines, VASCO and Jetstar Pacific Airlines, and expand VASCO’s business, thus meeting the increasing travel demands of passengers.

Vietnam Airlines has so far transferred Ho Chi Minh City-Rach Gia-Phu Quoc, HCM City-Phu Quoc-Can Tho, and Ha Noi- Dien Bien flights to VASCO.

Air routes between Hanoi–HCM City–Tuy Hoa, and HCM City–Chu Lai were also transferred to Jetstar Pacific Airlines.-VNA
