The first Jetstar Pacific flight from Ho Chi Minh City to central Quang Nam province landed at Chu Lai Airport on May 19, carrying 180 passengers.

Jetstar Pacific will operate three two-way flights from Ho Chi Minh City to Chu Lai Airport on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday every week, using Airbus A320s designed with 180 Economy seats. Each flight is scheduled to take about one hour and 15 minutes.

One way air fares vary, starting from 550,000 VND (25.2 USD) with the exception of discounted tickets.
