An international flight route connecting Harbin in Northeast China’s Heilongjiang province to Da Nang in Vietnam opened on July 13.

The flight is served by Airbus A321/A320 and runs Friday with flight number VJ8102/03.

The flight departs Nha Trang at 15:35 local time and arrives in Harbin at 21:50 Beijing time. After a one-hour and 40-minutes layover at the Harbin Taiping International Airport, the flight lands back in Da Nang at 4:25 local time the next day.

Da Nang is the fourth largest city in Vietnam and has a reputation as the “Oriental Little Hawaii”. It has a pleasant climate and beautiful coastal landscapes.

Located in the middle part of Vietnam, Da Nang is also an important transportation for tourists heading to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

The new service is being offered to meet the increasing demand for travel and trade between Harbin and Da Nang.

As of July, Harbin has been linked to 19 overseas destinations via international direct flight routes. The destinations include Vladivostok, Khabarovsk, Yekaterinburg, Moscow, Irkutsk, Krasnoyarsk, Novosibirsk and Yakutsk in Russia, Tokyo, Osaka, Niigata and Nagoya in Japan, Seoul, Jeju and Cheongju in South Korea, Bangkok in Thailand, Nha Trang and Da Nang in Vietnam, as well as Singapore.
