Vietnam Airlines Corporation will resume direct flights from HCM city to Japan’s Nagoya twice a week as of August 13 2010.
The corporation began this air route in July 2005, but suspended operations in December 2007 due to low demand.
At present, there are 25 flights a week from HCM City to four Japanese cities, including Tokyo, Osaka, Fukuoka and Nagoya.
Vietnam Airlines began operating its air route from Hanoi to Nagoya in November 2009.
Vietnam Airlines has just became a full member of SkyTeam, the world’s second largest airline alliance, making it the only carrier in Southeast Asia to be admitted as a member.
