Bangkok Airways Public Company Limited has announced its new service linking Bangkok and Da Nang, Vietnam.
The airline will offer four flights a week (Monday, Wednesday Friday and Saturday) with a 138-seater Airbus A319 aircraft.
Mr.Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth, president of Bangkok Airways PCL said, “Bangkok Airways is pleased to offer this new service to Da Nang. We consider Da Nang as one of our strategic flying hubs in the South East Asia region. Danang is the third largest city and a major port in Vietnam.
“The city is situated on the Eastern Sea and is close to UNESCO World heritage sites including the old town of Hoi An and the imperial capital of Hue, making Da Nang a popular vacationing spot for tourists who are looking to explore the attractions of central Vietnam.
“We consider this to be another milestone for us as this will make Bangkok Airways the only scheduled airline to fly to Da Nang from Thailand. We anticipate that the majority of our passengers will be businessmen and tourists from the two countries.
“Moreover, having a link to the central Vietnamese city of Da Nang will make it easier for our passengers traveling aboard our code-share-partner airlines from around the world to connect to Hoi An and Hue and the major gateways Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
“We are confident that with our strong reputation of offering a boutique flying experience for our passengers, Bangkok Airways will be the leading player in this market.”
