As many as 11 direct return flights between Can Tho city and Taiwan will be launched during the 2013 Tet holiday, said Can Tho Branch Director of Vietnam Airlines on December 13.

The flights aim to save money and time for overseas Vietnamese passengers that want to return Can Tho and the Mekong Delta provinces for the lunar New year, the most important festival in Vietnam which will fall by the middle of February next year.

This is the fourth year Vietnam Airlines has opened such flights.-VNA
