Hanoi (VNA) – Authorities of the central province of Thanh Hoa have asked low-cost carrier Vietjet to open new flights from the province to other localities.

Thanh Hoa aims to create optimal conditions for Vietjet to open new air routes to Da Nang, Can Tho, Pleiku, Da Lat and Binh Dinh, as well as ensure efficient operation of the flights.

Tho Xuan International Airport of Thanh Hoa is one of the fastest growing airports nationwide. The airport welcomed more than 822,000 passengers in 2016, increasing 10 times compared to when it started operation.

In the first three months of 2017, it received 245,000 passengers, up 23 percent year-on-year.

Currently, the airport has three domestic flights to/from Ho Chi Minh City, Nha Trang and Buon Ma Thuot.-VNA
