Charter flights connect Moscow with Khanh Hoa


A charter flight operated by Orient Air on Wednesday brought over 370 tourists from Moscow to Khanh Hoa Province, and there will be a charter flight on this route every ten days towards next year-end.

This is the first charter flight flying from Moscow to Khanh Hoa arranged by Russia’s Pegas Touristik and Anh Duong Co. Among tourists on this flight, over 240 tourists will stay at resorts in Binh Thuan Province and the rest will stay in Khanh Hoa Province’s Nha Trang City and Ninh Thuan Province.
 
From late last month until next April, Pegas Touristik and Anh Duong arrange charter flights from Russia’s Far East and Serbia to Khanh Hoa every day. A charter flight of Nordwind Airlines with 278 passengers on board also arrived at Cam Ranh International Airport in Khanh Hoa on Wednesday.
 
Hoang Thi Phong Thu, chairwoman of Anh Duong Co., said that during the period, the firm would welcome around 100,000 Russian tourists coming to Vietnam on charter flights, doubling the figure of last year’s same period.
 
“However, good news is that from next April to October, which is the off-season, the estimated number of tourists will also reach 100,000,” she said.
 
Russians have become highly-potential customers for Vietnam’s tourism. Together with Anh Duong, many other travel firms such as Huong Giang, AT Travel and Focus Travel are ones having large numbers of tourists from the Russian market.
 
Russian tourists come to Vietnam not only on charter flights but also on flights of Vietnam Airlines and Aeroflot to HCMC.
 
According to the General Statistics Office, there have been over 174,000 Russian tourist arrivals in Vietnam this year, up 71.5% from last year.
