Thai budget carrier AirAsia has launched a new route between the central city of Danang and Bangkok, Thailand, seven days a week, starting from June 9.

The city’s tourism promotion centre said it’s the third airline operating the Bangkok-Đà Nẵng route after Bangkok Airways and Vietnam Airlines.

Daily flights will depart from Đà Nẵng at 12pm and arrive in Bangkok at 1.20pm, while the flights from Bangkok will depart at 10.10am and arrive in Đà Nẵng at 11.30am.

AirAsia began offering a Kuala Lumpur-Đà Nẵng route, with four weekly direct flights, in 2014.

According to the centre, the new route would offer more chances for tourists traveling between Việt Nam’s central region and Bangkok.

Last year, Bangkok Airways operated four flights per week with 144 Economy class seats on an Airbus 319.

In 2014, local travel firm Viettravel also offered direct charter flights between the city and Bangkok on Thai Vietjet.

According to the city, import-export turnover between Thailand and Đà Nẵng reached US$30.2 million, of which $28.5 million were exports from Thailand.

Thailand has only had one investment project in the city so far with total value of $10,000.

The city hosted a mere 24,000 tourists from Thailand – 1.4 per cent of total foreign tourists visiting the city – in 2016.

Đà Nẵng has hosted the annual East-West Corridor Trade Fair since 2007, which attracted businesses from Thailand, Myanmar, Laos and Việt Nam.

The city, which is situated at the end of the East-West Economic Corridor – linking Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Việt Nam, is connected by 25 international routes with over 5.6 million tourists in 2016.
