DANANG - Authorities and travel agencies of Danang City are seeking cooperation opportunities with local partners on Phu Quoc Island to attract more Westerners visiting the island to Danang, following the launch of an air link between Danang and Phu Quoc on May 24.

A fam trip delegation, including representatives of the municipal Department of Tourism and 20 travel firms, surveyed the tourism market on the island off Kien Giang Province.

Aside from boosting the socioeconomic growth of the island, the air route is expected to connect tourism activities between Danang and Phu Quoc as well as the Mekong Delta provinces. It is especially expected to help the city attract European, American and Australian tourists to the central city in the coming days.

There are 40 daily international flights in operation, carrying foreign tourists from China, the United Kingdom, Italy and Sweden to the island. Accordingly, travel firms will collaborate in designing tours for Western tourists to visit both Phu Quoc and Danang, as well as the central region in general.

Apart from the newly launched Danang-Phu Quoc route, local budget carrier Jetstar Pacific on May 25 opened the Danang-Thanh Hoa route and another route linking the central city with Vinh City on April 10.

The three new routes will be connected with a network of routes operated by Vietnam Airlines Group, Jetstar Group and the five-star carrier Emirates Airlines, carrying passengers to over 185 destinations in 18 countries and territories.
