Airlines and tourism sector join hand for sustainable growth

Ánh Tuyết -

80% of tourists visiting Vietnam by air.

At a conference held in Hanoi on June 12, some airlines and localities have agreed to join hands for stimulating domestic tourism demand. 

The conference, titled “Tourism and Aviation Cooperate for Sustainable Development”, is aimed at seeking measures to promote the cooperation among localities, aviation and tourism sectors for a sustainable tourism ecosystem.

Central Da Nang city and southern coastal Khanh Hoa province are the two first localities joining the campaign with the aviation sector.

Under their agreement, the national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines and the two localities will jointly launch tourism promotion programs, including coordination for more flights to be conducted in early morning and late night with a discount of up to 30%.

According to participants, the aviation sector plays a key role in promoting tourism recovery and development and creating opportunities for passengers to explore new destinations.

Nearly 80% of tourists visiting Vietnam by air, figures from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism showed.

Meanwhile, tourism contributes to the development of the aviation sector by stimulating services demand from tourists and creating opportunities for renewal and improvement of air services.

“The two sectors are ready to support each other and coordinate to further promote the image of Vietnam to international friends and attract more foreign tourists as well as enhance domestic tourism growth, thus contributing to the country’s economic development,” Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism Hoang Dao Cuong told the conference.

Vietnam welcomed nearly 7.6 million foreign visitors and served 52.5 million domestic holidaymakers in the first five months of 2024.

It is forecasted that that the total 2024 demand for air passenger transport is estimated at 84.2 million passengers, up 15% over 2023.
