Da Nang is expected to receive more Thai tourists this summer after Bangkok Airways announced a new service from the capital city of Thailand.
The airline said at a press briefing Wednesday that starting May 25 it will have four return flights every week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday between the cities.
Flights will depart from Bangkok's main airport Suvarnabhumi at 11 a.m. and from Da Nang Airport at 1:35 p.m. A round trip ticket starts at US$213.
Varong Israsena Na Ayudhya, vice president in charge of sales, said it decided to launch the service as Da Nang is an interesting place with many attractions.
He said the carrier is negotiating with Vietnam Airlines to also launch code share flights to other cities in Vietnam.
Da Nang is the third biggest city in Vietnam and has been well connected to several destinations in China, South Korea and Southeast Asia.
The city received 1.27 million foreign tourists last year, up by a third from the previous year.
Thailand is also a popular travel destination among many Vietnamese.
