The total number of international flights throughout the four-month period will be 5,825, including 48 return flights per day and 342 return flights per week on average.

Meanwhile, airports in the Republic of Korea (RoK), Thailand, China, Japan, Malaysia, Cambodia, and Singapore will be frequent destinations for flights routes from Da Nang City.

The Da Nang investment forum 2022 held on June 25 saw the new-age carrier Vietjet officially announce seven new routes connecting the central coastal city with Singapore, the RoK, and India.

New routes will operate from July, with four to seven return flights per week in operation to meet the increasing demand for tourism, trade, investment, and visits.

Da Nang City had resumed international air routes from March this year following the nation’s long battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. By late June the central city had welcomed 286 international flights with 35,000 foreign arrivals.

Most notably, Da Nang received a total of 120 domestic and international flights on June 24, a record high figure over the past two years. 

Tourism revenue during the first half of the year is estimated to have increased by 41% over the same period from last year, according to local authorities.

Ho Ky Minh, vice chairman of the Da Nang government, said this level of demand represents positive signs for the central city’s tourism industry after two years of being negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
