Can Tho (VNA) - The tour agency Vietravel inaugurated its new route linking central Khanh Hoa province and the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho on January 21.

With this new route, Vietravel will operate three weekly charter flights with each lasting one hour. Passengers will be transported using Vasco’s 67-seat ATR-72 aircraft.

The flight is scheduled to depart from Can Tho international airport at 3 pm. The return flight will take off from the Cam Ranh international airport at 5 pm.

Tickets cost from 399,000 VND (17.9 USD) one way.

According to Vietravel deputy director Tran Doan The Duy, the demand for travelling to and from the Mekong Delta has increased recently, which he considers a good sign for the new route.

Vietravel recently resumed another flight that connects Can Tho and Da Lat City, in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong, at the end of December 2015.

The travel agency will also put its Can Tho - Thailand route back into operation during the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday.-VNA
