New air routes opened to save flight times

2010-01-22 (GMT + 7)

The government has permitted Vietnam Airlines to set up four new air routes from Vietnam to Laos and Cambodia.

The new routes comprise Na San – Ladon – Aksag, Nam Ha – Vilao – Pakse, Cam Ranh – Mesox and Phu Cat – Bunta.
The Na San – Ladon – Aksag will help shorten flights from Hanoi to France, Germany, Russia and vice versa.
The Nam Ha – Vilao – Pakse routes is expected to shorten flights from Hanoi and Da Nang to Siem Reap and Phnom Penh (Cambodia). Flights from Hanoi to Siem Reap will be 25 minutes shorter.
The Cam Ranh – Mesox route will make flights from Japan and South Korea to HCM City three  to four minutes shorter while flights between HCM City – HCM City and Northwestern Asia will save between four and six minutes thanks to the Phu Cat – Bunta route.
Opening the new air routes from Vietnam to Laos and Cambodia will be a good chance to develope the package tours among three Indochinese countries.
