Vietnam Airlines to launch non-stop flights from Da Nang to Osaka late October

The first non-stop flights from Da Nang to Japan will begin on 28 October, the national-flag carrier Vietnam Airlines has confirmed.

The airline will use a Airbus A321 with services meeting 4-star standards to cover the 2,114 miles (3,403 kilometers) from Da Nang to Japan’s Osaka City, with flights taking around four and a half-hours.

The airline will operate 7 return flights each week. The non-stop flights will depart from Da Nang at 00.20am, and from Osaka at 09.30am local time.

This will be the 11th air route to Japan operated by the Vietnam Airlines after those from Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh City and Da Nang to Japanese cities of Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, and Fukuoka.

To mark the opening occasion, the airline is launching a ticket promotion programme.

Accordingly, from now until 30 September, the airline is offering fares only from 5,899,000 VND (249 USD) for Osaka-Da Nang flights between 28 October and 31 December, as well as adding reward points for its loyal customers.

Vietnam Airlines is currently Viet Nam’s biggest carrier amongst those operating routes between Viet Nam and Japan, with an average of 70 flights per week.

Since the first non-stop flights between Viet Nam and Japan took off in 1994, Vietnam Airlines has carried 11.3 million air passengers between the two countries, accounting for 65% of its total market share.
