Da Nang (VNA) – Travelling between Vietnam and the Republic of Korea has just gotten easier as low-cost carrier VietJet launched direct flights connecting the central coastal city of Da Nang and Daegu city in the East Asian country on July 19.

The route is expected to boost trade and regional integration.

The daily round-trip flights between the two cities take four hours and 15 minutes. The departure time from Da Nang city is 0:15 and arrival time is 6:30 am (local time), while the return flight will take off at 7:30 am from Daegu and land in Hanoi at 10:00 am (local time).

Last year, the carrier launched an international route between Da Nang city and Seoul to meet increasing travel demand between the two cities.

Aiming to become a “Consumer Airline”, Vietjet is opening new routes, adding more aircraft, investing in modern technology and offering more added-on products and services.

Vietjet was the first airline in Vietnam to follow a low-cost, modernised carrier model to provide a wide range of services to its customers. Apart from air transportation, Vietjet also provides consumer goods and services via e-commerce technology.

In addition to being named Best Asian Low Cost Carrier awarded by TTG Travel Award in 2015, the airline was also honoured as one of the “Top 500 Leading Brands in Asia 2016” and “Best Recruiting Brand in Asia” for many consecutive years.

Currently, Vietjet operates 60 A320 and A321 aircraft with more than 380 flights daily, carrying more than 60 million passengers up to date, with 93 routes covering destinations in Vietnam as well as international destinations such as Hong Kong, Singapore, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan, China, Thailand, Indonesia, Myanmar, Malaysia and Cambodia.
