You Can Fly Directly From Phu Quoc to Bangkok Starting This October

Visitors to Vietnam’s southern tourism island can start adding Bangkok to their itinerary soon.

As Dan Tri reports, on October 3, Bangkok Airways announced that they’re starting a direct service from the Thai capital to Phu Quoc from October 29.

Bangkok Airways President Puttipong Prasarttong-Osoth shared at the launch that he’s had his eyes on the island as a future destination ever since his carrier started flying straight to Da Nang in 2016.

Bangkok-Phu Quoc flights will make use of ATR 72-600 aircraft, with the frequency of flights four times per week on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.

According to the Kien Giang Department of Tourism, the island has received a steady flow of tourists in recent years. For the first nine months of 2017, local businesses have welcomed 2.26 million visitors, an 8.8% increase compared to the same period last year.

Vietnam currently also offers international tourists visa exemption for 30 days on Phu Quoc.
