Qatar Airways to Launch Direct Flights to Danang, Vietnam

Qatar Airways has unveiled plans to launch direct flights between Doha and Danang, Vietnam starting 19 December 2018.

 The popular coastal city will be the third Vietnamese destination on the airline’s rapidly expanding global network

 The four-times weekly flights will be served with Boeing 787-8 aircraft, featuring 22 seats in Business Class and 232 seats in Economy Class.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said, “Our existing services to Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi are already incredibly popular. Every day, thousands of passengers experience a seamless connection between flights through our state-of-the-art Doha hub at Hamad International Airport, and now we have made it even easier for travellers to reach these increasingly popular Asian destinations. We look forward to enabling our passengers to experience the beautiful coastal scenery of Danang, and will continue to explore opportunities to expand further in the Far East.”

Qatar Airways began direct services to Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) in 2007, and launched its Hanoi service in 2010. Currently, the airline provides double daily direct flights to Vietnam’s capital city and 10 times weekly flights to Ho Chi Minh.

In October 2017, Qatar Airways signed an interline agreement with Vietnam-based Vietjet Air, allowing Qatar Airways’ passengers to travel to and from points in Vietnam not served directly by Qatar Airways using a single reservation across both airlines’ networks.

Director of Danang Tourism Department, Mr. Ngo Quang Vinh, said: “Danang is becoming increasingly popular among tourists, and has experienced extraordinary development since 2008. As of June 2018, Danang has welcomed the presence of 24 international airlines, operating 15 frequent direct flights to and from overseas destinations. We are delighted to welcome Qatar Airways, the award-winning airline playing a crucial role in strengthening the connection of Danang to the world. We are looking forward to welcoming more tourists to Danang, and we will continue our efforts to transform Danang into an outstanding global destination.”

Danang, one of the largest cities in Vietnam, has seen a tremendous increase in the number of visitor arrivals, with a record-breaking 6.6 million tourists in 2017, doubling the figure in 2013.
