The first-ever direct flight connecting Vietnam’s Central Highlands city of Da Lat and the Thai capital of Bangkok will be commenced next month to celebrate the 2017 Da Lat Flower Festival, low-cost carrier Vietjet said Friday.

Commencing on December18, the new service will be operated by an Airbus A320 with four return flights per week on every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, Vietjet said in a press release.

The flight departs at 10:30 am from Bangkok and returns at 12:55 pm from Da Lat with a flight time of one hour 45 minutes.

Booking is already available at the airline’s website, with one-way fares starting from only VND68,000 (US$3), excluding taxes and charges.

“The new service will be launched just before the Da Lat Flower Festival and I am delighted that people from [Vietnam and Thailand] now can travel conveniently to enjoy their neighboring country’s sceneries even more through our expanding flight network,” Vietjet vice president Nguyen Thi Thuy Binh said.

The Da Lat-Bangkok service totals the number of direct routes between Thailand and Vietnam, operated by Vietjet and Thai Vietjet, to six. The existing routes are Bangkok to Hanoi/Hai Phong/Ho Chi Minh City/Da Lat and Ho Chi Minh City to Phuket/Chiang Mai.

The Da Lat Flower Festival will be held from December 23 to December 27.
