Quang Binh to have first int’l air route
Update: Jul 13, 2017
The first international flight between Dong Hoi and Chiang Mai in Thailand is expected to depart on August 11, 2017, said a representative of Jetstar Pacific Airlines at a recent meeting with leaders of Quang Binh central province.

The airlines is gearing up all necessary preparations for the first flight, he said, adding that other flights will be conducted on every Monday and Friday.

Nguyen Huu Hoan, Chair of Quang Binh provincial People’s Committee, spoke highly of Jetstar’s plan, saying that he hopes the international air route will help bring more foreign visitors to the province, contributing to local socio-economic development.

He asked relevant agencies to disseminate information about the air route, especially to travel agents in and outside the province.

The Thai people are currently paying more attention to tourism sites in Viet Nam while Thai famous landscapes attract Vietnamese visitors. Now with the air route, it takes just two hours to fly from Chiang Mai to Dong Hoi, instead of two days travelling by road as previously.

Jetstar Pacific launched flights between Dong Hoi and Hai Phong in late April.
