Quang Ninh (VNA) – Chairman of the People’s Committee of the northern province of Quang Ninh Nguyen Duc Long has ordered local media agencies to prioritise popularizing the opening of air routes to Van Don International Airport which is expected to become operational in late December.

The local Department of Information and Communications was asked to coordinate with communications units which have cooperative programmes with the province to step up disseminations, and support airlines in installing billboards.

The Ha Long Sun Ltd., Co was requested to help airlines enjoy free advertisements on a LED display system installed at the Ha Long Park, while airlines were urged to actively provide advertisement information for the province’s units.

Long asked the Transport Department to choose a competent supplier of buses, and the Tourism Department to coordinate with the management boards of Ha Long Bay and Yen Tu Relic Site to control the number of free tickets to the two tourist attractions for passengers going through Van Don International Airport.

Free tickets will be provided for passengers within 30 days since they go through the airport. This policy will be applied from January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2021.

Following a resolution of the provincial People’s Council, airlines which are granted with business and transport licenses at the airport will receive incentives related to communications, advertisement, public transportation, and working offices.-VNA
