Low-cost airline Vietjet is celebrating the 30th anniversary of dialogue between the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) and South Korea by launching routes that connect some of Vietnam's largest tourist destinations, namely Da Lat, Can Tho, Nha Trang and Phu Quoc with Seoul.

The announcement, attended by Prime Minister of Vietnam Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Deputy Prime Minister of South Korea Hong Nam-Ki and senior leaders from both the South Korean and Vietnamese governments, took place during the Vietnam – South Korea Business Forum on November 28, 2019 in Seoul.

By connecting Seoul with Can Tho in the Mekong Delta in Southwest Vietnam, Nha Trang on the south central coast of Vietnam and Phu Quoc, known as Vietnam’s “Pearl Island”, the new routes will boost tourism and trade as well as cultural exchanges between the two countries while also helping to forge even closer links between South Korea and all of Asean. 

Three return flights per week will operate on the Seoul (Incheon) – Can Tho route, while the Seoul (Incheon) – Da Lat route will see four return flights per week, each with a flying time of more than five hours per leg, starting from January.

The two current routes linking Seoul (Incheon) to Nha Trang and Phu Quoc will also increase the frequency to meet the high demand of passengers.
