Prime Minister approves project on developing direct air routes

The Prime Minister has approved a project to expand direct air routes between Vietnam and major destinations worldwide.

There will be more new routes from Vietnam to key markets, including the US, China, South Korea, Japan, Thailand, Malaysia, Russia, Germany, Australia, France, the UK, and India, and new markets such as the United Arab Emirates and South Africa. By 2020, Vietnamese air companies will have new routes from Da Nang, Hai Phong, Nha Trang, Phu Quoc, Da Lat, Hue, and Can Tho to dozens of cities in China and Russia. Vietnamese companies will open flights to Yekaterinburg and Vladivostok in Russia. They also expect to offer their first direct service to a destination on the West coast of the US, probably San Francisco or Los Angeles, later this year.
