Fifteen airlines are expected to operate international flights connecting numerous destinations with Da Nang from now until the end of the year, promising ample opportunities for the promotion and development of local tourism.

These airlines will operate international routes from such countries as South Korea, Thailand, Singapore, Japan, and Malaysia, among others, to Da Nang with a total frequency of up to 90 flights per week, Ho Ky Minh, vice-chairman of the municipal People’s Committee, said on Monday.

The Vietnamese coastal city recently collaborated with budget carrier Vietjet Air in opening five air routes to major cities in India and Singapore.

In the first six months of this year, Da Nang has welcomed 286 international flights carrying 35,000 passengers, according to vice-chairman Minh.

On June 24, the city received a record of 120 domestic and international flights, the official added.

The local tourism sector has had a positive and breakthrough recovery with a series of products, services, and festivals since the end of the first quarter.

Many tourist areas and attractions have received a large number of visitors, Minh continued, adding that the average occupancy rate of local hotels reached up to 70-75 percent on weekends.

The city’s tourism revenue in the first six months of this year has increased 41 percent compared to the same period in 2021.

These are good signs for Da Nang’s tourism after being affected by the COVID-19 pandemic for two years, the vice-chairman assessed, noting that the city now needs to renew itself in order to take advantage of every opportunity for tourism recovery and development.
