Budget carrier Jetstar Pacific Airlines and Quang Binh provincial People’s Committee have agreed to launch two new air routes: Dong Hoi – Haiphong and Dong Hoi – Chiang Mai (Thailand). The Chiang Mai route will be the first international air connection from Quang Binh.
Accordingly, Dong Hoi and Chiang Mai air route is being discussed for launch in June 2017, and the Dong Hoi – Hai Phong air route is scheduled to open in the end of May 2017 with two flights a week.
Recently, Thai tourists are interested in Vietnam’s tourist attractions like Quang Binh, Hoi An, Sa Pa and Trang An. Specifically, Chiang Mai has familiar attractions to discover nature, culture and history with Quang Binh province. However, it take two days for travelers to come to Quang Binh by road from Chiang Mai, while they need only spend two hours to travel by air.
