The national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines announced on May 15 that it will launch two new international routes to airports in Tokyo, Japan in July, from Hanoi - Haneda and Da Nang – Narita.

The airline will operate seven flights per week between Hanoi and Haneda airport from July 1, using Airbus A321 aircraft, while the direct Da Nang – Narita route will begin on July 16 with four flights per week, also using Airbus A321 plane.

Vietnam Airlines’ Deputy General Director Trinh Ngoc Thanh said the opening of new routes to two airports in Tokyo would meet the increasing demand of travellers and connect with Japan’s domestic routes.
