VGP - Bangkok Airways has launched a direct air route between Thailand’s Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok and Phu Quoc International Airport in Viet Nam’s Kien Giang province. 

The new air route offers Thai visitors chance to explore the beauty of Phu Quoc islands

Speaking at the ceremony, the Bangkok Airways President Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth hailed the beauty of Phu Quoc, saying it’s Bangkok Airways second destination in Viet Nam, following the central city of Da Nang.

The airway’s first flight to Phu Quoc will depart on October 29, he added.

In turn, the Vietnamese Ambassador highlighted the tourism potential of Phu Quoc, with the island designated a special economic zone.

The flight route will not only help boost tourism, but also facilitate trade links and investment in the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang.

Known as a tourism paradise, Phu Quoc is endowed with long, white-sand beaches and clear waters, while numerous high-end facilities have been developed to serve tourists.
