A Macau travel agency is cooperating with two Vietnamese companies to offer charter flights between Ho Chi Minh City and Macau. 
There will be three return flights each week from September 22, according to representatives of Sun Star from Macau, Viking Travel in Ho Chi Minh City and Indochina Travel Services in Hanoi,  news website Saigon Times Online reported.
They said they will maintain the service for a year and will increase the number of flights if the demand is strong.
Each flight can carry 180 passengers.
Tran Xuan Hung, director of Viking, said it will cooperate with the Macau firm to bring tourists into Vietnam on short trips. 
It will also bring foreign tourists from Ho Chi Minh City to Macau on the chartered flights.
Hung said his company will focus on Indonesian travelers, who can visit Vietnam and Macau without a visa. 
He said the company has not planned tours for Vietnamese travelers to Macau as visa requirements currently take around three weeks.
