Low-cost carrier Jetstar Pacific on March 30 officially opened a direct air route between Hanoi and the Thai capital of Bangkok.

The daily flights using Airbus 320 take off at 11:10am from the Noi Bai International Airport and 2:35pm from the Suvarnabhumi International Airport.

The flight takes 1 hour and 50 minutes each way.

This is the second route linking Vietnam and Thailand opened by Jetstar Pacific.

Previously, the carrier inaugurated its service between Ho Chi Minh City and Bangkok, which officially operated last year.

The airline has also announced it will operate one daily return flight between Hanoi and the southern resort island of Phu Quoc from June 1 to September 6 in anticipation of rising demand during the summer.-VNA
