The national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines and the East Sea Travel Germany have worked on a plan to run a direct flight from Berlin to Hanoi on June 25, to assess the demand for the route and possibly operate it permanently.

Nghiem Van Khanh, the representative for Vietnam Airlines in Germany said the flight, on the opening of the new Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport, which will be officially in operation by June 3, will target Vietnamese people living in Berlin and surrounding areas.

Tickets for a one-way flight will cost 895 Euros. The return flight to Germany will travel via Frankfurt as normal.-VNA
