The introduction of the Da Lat-Seoul route expands Jeju Air's operations to a total of seven links between South Korea and Vietnam across six cities, namely Seoul-Da Nang, Seoul-Nha Trang, Seoul-Phu Quoc, Seoul-Hanoi, Seoul-Ho Chi Minh City, and Busan-Da Nang. 

For Da Lat, this marks the third direct flight connecting to South Korea, following the opening of Da Lat-Busan and Da Lat-Jeju routes.

According to Nguyen Ngoc Phuc, vice-chairman of the People's Committee of Lam Dong Province, South Korean tourists currently constitute over 60 percent of international visitors to the Central Highlands province.

The inauguration of the Seoul-Da Lat route is anticipated to bring substantial benefits to both cities, fostering tourism and economic development in each locality.
