Singapore-based Jetstar Asia Airways introduced new direct services from Singapore to Da Nang city on Vietnam’s central coast on August 4, the second low-cost flight from Singapore to Vietnam after Ho Chi Minh City.

Flight schedules and ticket bookings also became available for purchase the same day for flights beginning on November 27.

The carrier will operate three flights a week – on Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday – on the 180-seat Airbus A320 aircraft.

Ticket fares begin at 1,408,700 VND (65 USD). The low-budget airline is offering free return tickets for all bookings from 11:00 am on August 4 to midnight on August 6 for flights between November 27 and December 10, 2015 to celebrate the new route.

Anthony Gill, Director of the Central Coast of Vietnam Destination Marketing Organisation, said international tourist arrivals to the central coast of Vietnam rose by 25 percent over the past 3 years.

Additionally, Vietnam’s visa waiver for several European countries will welcome more international travels to Da Nang city via Singapore, he added.-VNA
