The flight will depart from Da Nang International Airport at 6.10pm (local time), whilst the return flight will take off at 2.30am (local time) from Haneda Airport. The flight duration is approximately 5 hours and 30 minutes per leg.

According to Vice President of Vietjet Air Nguyen Duc Thinh, the new route from Tokyo to Da Nang is expected to help complete the connection from Japan to Vietnam, with prominent destinations in the central region such as Da Nang, the ancient town of Hoi An , Hue, Quang Binh, among others.

In contrast, tourists and people in the centre of Vietnam can now easily fly to Japan and other countries in Asia without having to first travel to Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City as before, he added.
