National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines on Sunday launched a direct air route connecting Hanoi with India’s Mumbai to strengthen trade, and socio-cultural connectivity between the two nations.
This is the carrier’s second route connecting Vietnam and India, after New Delhi capital.
Its Deputy General Director Trinh Ngoc Thanh said that with a new route linking to Mumbai, India’s most important financial, commercial and cultural center, the airline wants to show its commitment to continuously expanding and developing a network of routes, giving passengers options.
Vietnam Airlines will operate four flights per week on the Hanoi-Mumbai route on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays.
To mark the new service, it is offering preferential fares, with a round-trip ticket, including taxes and fees, costing $199.
The prices are applied for tickets purchased until May 26, for flights between May 20 and 26.
