On January 28, Vietnam’s national flag carrier announced its first direct flight from Moscow to Nha Trang City in central Vietnam from April 5.
Vietnam Airlines will fly one Boeing 777-200 flight per week in summer and two in winter.
The Airline will also offer 10 percent discount on return tickets from January 28 to June 30.
A representative of Vietnam Airlines in Russia said the new route aims to bring a large number of Russian visitors to Vietnam, especially for tourism in the winter season to enjoy the sea-sun-sand in Nha Trang City.
In 2012, the number of passengers on the Moscow-Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh City flights rose by 10,000 from the previous year, which saw 79,000 visitors.
