The first seaplane flights between the ancient capital of Hue and its neighboring city of Da Nang was launched on Friday, offering both transportation and sightseeing services in the two famed destinations in central Vietnam.

The service provider, Hai Au Aviation JSC, said this is the first time the two central coastal cities have been connected by its air route, which promises spectacular experience for sightseeing lovers.

The service connects Phu Bai Airport in Hue with the Da Nang International Airport, with one daily flight from each of the cities.

Besides the air travel service, tourists can choose either to enjoy famous attractions of both cities in a 40 minute flight.

They can also take a 30-minute sightseeing sky tour to get an overview of the Imperial City within the Hue Citadel and other popular sites in the ancient capital city of Vietnam. This tour also allows passengers to admire Da Nang must-see tourist attractions including a 30km magnificent beach from Son Tra Peninsula to the city center, the iconic Han River, and the famous Golden Bridge in Ba Na Hills.

The services are offered with the 12-seat Cessna Grand Caravan 208B-EX Airbus aircraft from 300m above the ground.

Ngo Quang Vinh, director of  the Da Nang tourism department, said that the new flights to Hue City would be the best-selling service in upcoming years.

“Central Vietnam is famous for its natural and magnificent beauty, so this kind of service will definitely hold the appeals of both domestic and international tourists,” he said with confidence.
