Phu Bai International Airport received the first charter flight bringing 230 Chinese tourists from Kunming City to the central province of Thua Thien Hue on July 2.

They are scheduled to tour around several places in Thua Thien-Hue province, including the Complex of Hue Monuments which was honoured as a World Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in 1993.

In addition to Hue City’s must-see attractions, other tourist sites in neighbouring localities such as Da Nang and Quang Nam attract Chinese tourists during their six-day trip.

Mr. Nguyen Thanh Binh, Vice Chairman of Thua Thien Hue Provincial People’s Committee welcomed and gave flowers to visitors.

Budget carrier VietJet Air is set to operate charter flights from Chinese cities to Phu Bai International Airport by October this year. During the period, there will be around 6 flights to Hue and neighbouring localities per month.

Thua Thien-Hue welcomed more than 1.6 million travelers, including 567,000 foreign visitors, in the first half of the year, earning roughly VND3.5 trillion in revenue.

The provincial tourism industry is aiming to receive 3.5 million visitors this year, of which domestic tourists account for around 70%- 80% of the overall figure, with tourism revenue estimated at VND6 – 7 trillion.
