Thai budget carrier launches daily Da Nang-Bangkok flights

The city’s tourism promotion centre said it’s the third airline operating the Bangkok-Da Nang route after Bangkok Airways and Vietnam Airlines.

Daily flights will depart from Da Nang at 12pm and arrive in Bangkok at 1.20pm, while flights from Bangkok will take off at 10.10am and land in Da Nang at 11.30am.

AirAsia began offering a Kuala Lumpur-Da Nang route, with four weekly direct flights, in 2014.

According to the centre, the new route will contribute to offering more services for tourists traveling between Vietnam’s central region and Bangkok.

Last year, Bangkok Airways operated four flights per week with 144 Economy class seats on Airbus 319.

In 2014, local travel firm Viettravel also offered direct charter flights between the city and Bangkok on Thai Vietjet.
