NDO/VNA – Low-cost carrier Vietjet Air said it will officially launch a new air route connecting Hanoi and Yangon – the famous tourism city of Myanmar, on August 31.

The airline will conduct round-trip flights every day with a flight duration of one hour and 25 minutes.

The flight from Hanoi will depart at 12:05 and arrive in Yangon at 13:30 (local time). Return flights are scheduled to leave Yangon at 14:30 and arrive in Hanoi at 16:55.

To mark the occasion, VietJet is offering tickets at only VND205,000 (about US$9) for the route.

This is the second service of VietJet to Myanmar, after the Ho Chi Minh City-Yangon route.

Vietnam and Myanmar are attractive destinations for investors from many countries, and have strong economic development. The new route is expected to meet the increasing demand of travel for the two countries’ people, contributing to promoting regional trade and integration.
