In a momentous occasion, Vietravel Airlines has carried out its inaugural direct flight from Hanoi, Vietnam to Sanya Phoenix International Airport in Hainan, China. This landmark move comes right on the heels of the launch of the Nha Trang-Macau route earlier this year in May.
Departing from Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport, charter flight No. VU1418 flew over 130 enthusiastic passengers, mainly tourists, eager to explore the new connection between the two nations.
Vu Duc Bien, the General Director of Vietravel Airlines, highlighted the Chinese market’s strategic importance in Asia. He explained that the Chinese market has always been a focal point for the airline since its establishment.
The immediate plan will see Vietravel Airlines furthering its charter flight operations to China. This strategy allows the airline to demonstrate its efficiency, as well as laying the foundation for future regular routes to China.
This news is especially relevant since China added Vietnam to its list of allowed destinations for group tours, effective from March 15.
But what does this mean for Vietravel Airlines and its future growth? Looking forward, 2023 holds ambitious goals for the airline. Not only are they planning to expand their aircraft fleet, but they’re also investing in extensive training initiatives for human resources. Plus, they’re focusing on strengthening both domestic and international flight networks.
The successful execution of the Hanoi to China flight marks a pivotal step in Vietravel Airlines’ continuous growth and shows their commitment to enhancing connectivity within Asia.
Whether it’s about providing more travel options for tourists or strengthening business links between Vietnam and China, Vietravel Airlines’ expansion strategy seems to be well on track. This development may usher in a new era of opportunities for travelers and businesses alike.
Vietnam’s travel industry is sure to benefit from these initiatives, setting the stage for a vibrant future in both domestic and international tourism.
