NDO – An air route linking Dong Hoi city, in Quang Binh province, and Da Nang city will be launched on May 4 by the Ho Chi Minh City-based Seagull Shipping Company (SESCO), announced the Quang Binh provincial Department of Tourism on April 20.

This is the first sightseeing flight service to be launched to provide passengers with an aerial view of the Phong Nha - Ke Bang National Park along with other tourist attractions of Quang Binh, such as En, Son Doong and Thien Duong (Paradise) Caves.

The Cessna Caravan 208B-EX aircraft will be used for the route, with a capacity of 14 seats, including two pilots and 12 passengers, due to its high level of safety when landing on water, stability standards, and resource efficiency.

The one-hour flight will operate on weekends only with a promotional price at US$300 per ticket, which will be applied until September 30 to celebrate the launch of the air route. The air charter service for the flight will cost US$3,300.

The service is expected to diversify the range of Quang Binh’s tourist products and lure more visitors to the province, thus boosting local tourism.
