HO CHI MINH CITY – In line with plans to further expand its international network in 2017 to boost regional trade and integration, Vietjethas introduced yet another international route connecting the central city of Da Nang to Seoul (South Korea) in a bid to meet the increasing travel demands of corporate professionals and leisure travelers between the two renowned tourist cities.
With this, Da Nang is now Vietnam's 4th destination to be connected with Seoul – the famed capital of South Korea, following three other international routes serviced by Vietjet which connects Seoul with Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi and Hai Phong.
The new route will commence operation on 31 May 2017 with flight duration of 4 hours 30 minutes per leg. Operated on a daily basis, the flight from Da Nang departs at 11.45 pm (local time) and arrives in Seoul at 6.00am (local time). The return flight subsequently departs at 7.00am (local time) and arrives in Da Nang at 9.40am.
In celebration of the new route and Valentine's Day, Vietjet is running a three-day promotion offering 500,000 air tickets beginning 14 to 16 February 2017. The promotion is applicable on all international routes from Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Hai Phong and Da Nang to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Seoul, Busan (Korea), Hong Kong, Kaohsiung, Taipei, Taichung, Tainan (Taiwan), Singapore, Bangkok (Thailand), Yangon (Myanmar) and Siem Reap (Cambodia) for travels between 1 March to 12 December 2017 (excluding national holidays).
Seoul is ranked as one of the world's top favorite cities alongside New York and Tokyo to name a few. Despite its rapid modernization, the Korean capital remains famous for its traditional Korean culture and rich history dating back 600 years. Coupled with a fully developed entertainment and shopping industry, convenient transportation system and extremely rich food culture, Seoul has undoubtedly made its mark as one of the world's top favorite cities.
