Another S.Korean airline resumes direct service to Khanh Hoa

An Air Seoul flight carrying 187 passengers from the Incheon international airport arrived at the Cam Ranh International Airport in Khanh Hoa Province on June 24.

The resumption of direct services on the route is expected to promote the post-pandemic tourism recovery in the south-central province, said Le Thi Hong Minh, general director of the Cam Ranh International Terminal JSC.

After this flight, there will be four weekly flights operating on the Incheon-Cam Ranh-Incheon route on Mondays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.

Lee Jungmi, chief representative of Air Seoul in Khanh Hoa, said the airline plans to operate four weekly flights between South Korea and Khanh Hoa in late July and offer daily services on the route in late August.

“As Khanh Hoa is among the top destinations for South Korean visitors, we expect the flights on the route to operate at full capacity soon,” she added.

Vietnamese budget carrier Vietjet Air restarted services on the Incheon-Cam Ranh route on May 20, with three weekly flights.

On July 1, Vietnam’s national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines is set to resume Incheon-Cam Ranh services.

Data from the Khanh Hoa Department of Tourism shows that the coastal province saw over one million arrivals in the first half of the year, up a staggering 128.6% year-on-year and hitting 87.2% of the 2022 target.

Of them, international visitors accounted for 42,507, soaring 122.5% against the year-ago figure.

In June alone, the province served around 350,000 visitors, including some 13,000 international tourists. Its tourism revenue in June has totaled nearly VND5.5 trillion, improving over 109% compared to the same period last year.

In mid-June, the provincial tourism authority held the Nha Trang Sea Festival between June 16 and 19, featuring over 200 booths and a wide range of activities, attracting more than 150,000 visitors.

Nguyen Thi Le Thanh, director of the provincial Tourism Department, said that after nearly two years of suspension due to the Covid pandemic, local tourism is recovering strongly, with visitor arrivals to Khanh Hoa shooting up.
