Vietnam Airlines will operate 3 direct return flights per week between Da Nang and Seoul, starting from 1 July.  This information will be announced at the 2013 Korea World Travel Fair (KOTFA 2013), which is being held at the Convention and Exhibition Centre (COEX) in Seoul from 30 May to 2 June.  The new route will help to bring more visitors from South Korea to the city in the future.


South Korea is considered to be one of Da Nang’s major tourism markets.  The central region, especially Hoi An, Da Nang, and Thua Thien-Hue Province, is witnessing a significant increase in visitors from South Korea who come to spend their vacations and play golf here.  This is the result of the increased number of Da Nang-Seoul direct flights, which are already being operated by Korean Air and Asiana Airlines.  These airlines together bring 6 flights per week and between about 3,000 and 3,500 passengers to the central region every month.

KOTFA, the large-scale international travel fair, is held annually in South Korea.  This year’s 4-day event will see the participation of over 400 businesses from 60 countries and territories worldwide.
