Aviation news: Air routes considered to connect Quang Ninh with East Asian destinations

Officials participating in the 17th General Assembly of the East Asia Inter-Regional Tourism Forum (EATOF 17) have agreed to step up the opening of direct air routes linking Vietnam’s northern province of Quang Ninh with some foreign member localities of this forum. The agreements were reached during bilateral meetings between Quang Ninh and foreign officials within the EATOF 17 framework, which is taking place in Ha Long city of the Vietnamese province from October 25 to 27.

Talking to local officials, the Governor of the Republic of Korea’s Gangwon province Kim Jin-tae expressed his hope for stronger cooperation on the basis of the two sides’ potential and similarities. He suggested opening an air route connecting Van Don International Airport of Quang Ninh with Yangyang International Airport of Gangwon, and enhancing ties in developing tourism products, promoting tourism, and training human resources for the sector.

Welcoming the recommendations, the Chairman of the Quang Ninh People’s Committee Nguyen Tuong Van said his province will provide the best possible conditions for the two sides to study and open the Van Don - Yangyang air route, create tourism products based on the provinces’ advantages and further attract Quang Ninh and Gangwon visitors to each other’s destinations.

At another meeting, Van and the Governor of Mongolia’s Tuv province, Munkhbaatar Demberel agreed to bolster partnerships in tourism promotion, product development, and opening of an air route between Quang Ninh and Tuv. The Mongolian province also hoped to exchange experience in agricultural development with the Vietnamese side.

At other bilateral sessions, Quang Ninh and other foreign member localities of the EATOF also concurred in boosting relations in several areas, including opening direct air routes linking the province with Luang Prabang (Laos), Siem Reap (Cambodia), Sarawak (Malaysia), and Cebu (the Philippines); increasing cultural exchanges and the connection of heritage sites in the region; designing tours of their places of interest, and attracting visitors to each other’s destinations.
