From Hanoi, flights depart Noi Bai International Airport at 01.45, while flights take off from Da Nang International Airport at 02.00. Both flights leave Incheon at 11.05.
The carrier has named Seyou its general sales agent within the Asia-Pacific region and will launch more joint ventures with regional airline partners. It will grow ticketing channels throughout all existing sales touchpoints to meet the increasing travel demands between South Korea and Vietnam.
