NDO – The Nghe An provincial People’s Committee, in collaboration with the Vietravel tour operator, launched a new air route linking Nghe An’s Vinh city and Bangkok and put into operation a new international terminal at Vinh Airport, on February 23.

The move aims to serve the attraction of investment and the travel demand and trade activities between the people in the northern central region and Thailand, thus contributing to accelerating socio-economic development. Furthermore, it also creates an important premise for the opening of additional air routes in the near future.

On the occasion, Vietravel operated a charter flight from Vinh to Bangkok, which was the first international flight made at the newly inaugurated international terminal at Vinh Airport.

The travel company also coordinated with the relevant units to greet another flight carrying 180 passengers from Thailand, the biggest international delegation in many recent years, to arrive at Vinh Airport.

On the same day, Bamboo Airways, an FLC Group-owned carrier, launched four air routes, including Vinh – Buon Ma Thuot city (Dak Lak province), Vinh – Da Lat city (Lam Dong), Hanoi – Vinh, and Ho Chi Minh City – Vinh, at Vinh Airport in the presence of Deputy Prime Minister Vuong Dinh Hue and Vice Chairman of the National Assembly Uong Chu Luu.

With the newly inaugurated air routes, Bamboo Airways is now operating a total of 16 routes to localities nationwide and will look towards operating 37 domestic and international air routes by the end of this year.
