StarLux Airlines plans to have 3 flights a week on the Taipei-Da Nang air route until the end of November and will likely increase frequency in December. It’ll take 2 hours and 50 minutes for each flight.

Nguyen Xuan Binh, Deputy Director of the municipal Tourism Department, said the resumption of flights is extremely important at the time when the city is trying to recover the tourism market.

“Based on the outcomes of promotion programs held by the municipal administration and business community, we hope during the last months of 2022, more tourists will come to Da Nang,” said Binh.
