Vietjet Air Extends Cam Ranh's Korean Network to Busan Starting 16 July 2019
Vietjet Air, the largest airline by market share at Cam Ranh Airport Terminal 2, will commence direct flights to Busan starting on 16 Jul 2019. This new non-stop service adds a third new destination in Korea to Cam Ranh (CXR) Airport’s network. Busan (PUS) also represents the third new service launched by Vietjet Air this year, following Taipei and Macau.
Busan is South Korea’s second largest city and the economic, cultural and educational center of southeastern Korea. The appeal of Busan mainly comes from what it offers as a “city of yesterday,” full or arts and culture. It is a sharp contrast to Seoul’s modernity, but the vibrancy is still reflected in the variety of unique cuisines and convenience of shopping districts.
This new service from Cam Ranh is operated out of Cam Ranh Terminal 2, managed by Cam Ranh International Terminal (CRTC) JSC. “We are delighted for Vietjet Air to be the first airline offering the communities of Cam Ranh and Nha Trang one more gateway into Korea. It opens more opportunities to boost trade and tourism between the two economies, as well as expanding to yet another new destination in the international network of Cam Ranh Airport. We warmly welcome more Korean visitors to the fastest-growing beach destination in Vietnam,” a statement by the CRTC Management Board.
Cam Ranh Airport is connected to Korea via gateways in Seoul (Incheon), Daegu and now Busan. The first flight to PUS departs on 16th Jul 2019 at 23:40, arriving into PUS at 06:20 the next day while the return flight departs from PUS at 07:35 and arrives back at CXR around 10:15 on 17th July 2019. The CXR-PUS service is offered 4-times weekly, at different times of the day depending on the day of operation, and is operated by A320/A321 aircraft mix.
