Vietnam Airlines has said it would resume flights between Ho Chi Minh City and Nagoya, Japan's fourth most populated city, on August 13 after suspending the route for nearly three years.
Two flights per week are scheduled between the two cities, the national flag carrier said.
It opened the HCMC-Nagoya route in July 2005 but suspended the service in December 2007 due to a lack of passengers.
Once the service is resumed, Vietnam Airlines will offer its customers a total of 25 flights per week from HCMC to four Japanese cities: Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka, and Nagoya.
The carrier launched its Hanoi-Nagoya route last November.
