Now Da Lat going to offer international flights

The approval, given at a meeting with provincial authorities, will allow the People’s Committee of Lam Dong Province to offer direct international flights between Da Lat and South Korea, Singapore, Cambodia and Laos.

Da Lat’s Lien Khuong Airport is set to serve as an international stepping stone to other Asian countries after Standing Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Sinh Hung approved the area’s new air routes on Wednesday.

The opening of international flights aims to help the Central Highlands province develop tourism and export vegetables, fruits and flowers, authorities said.

In addition, the province will also resume air routes between the resort town of Da Lat and two other cities - Da Nang in the central region and Can Tho in the Mekong Delta.
