Bamboo Airways launches Ha Noi-Lijiang direct flights
VGP - Bamboo Airways has launched its first direct flight connecting the capital city of Ha Noi and Lijiang city in China’s Yunnan province.
With an expected frequency of three return flights per week, Bamboo Airways is the first and only airline of Viet Nam to conduct charter flights from Ha Noi to Lijiang city.
The air route will help shorten the traveling time from Ha Noi to the Chinese city to two hours compared to about 4-16 hours if passengers use connecting flights, or 16 hours if they travel by road.
A representative of Bamboo Airways said the operation of round-trip flights between Ha Noi and Lijiang will meet the travel demands of people in the two cities, as well as contribute to promoting cooperation between the two countries in various fields.
This is also a solid foundation for the carrier to exploit regular direct flights between Viet Nam and China in the future.
According to the Viet Nam National Authority of Tourism, Viet Nam welcomed 738,000 Chinese tourists in the first seven months of 2023./.
