On 3 February Jetstar Pacific Airlines launched its second route in less than a week involving Buon Ma Thuot Airport. It now operates twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Thursdays) from the airport to Thanh Hoa on Vietnam’s north-east coast.
- Jetstar Pacific Airlines followed the recent launch of three new domestic routes, with another, which commenced operations on Tuesday 3 February. This time, the airline is operating twice-weekly (Tuesdays and Thursdays) on the 814-kilometre route between Buon Ma Thuot (BMV) and Thanh Hoa (THD) using its A320s. No other carrier serves this airport pair. Up until now Thanh Hoa’s only scheduled services were to Ho Chi Minh City, operated daily by Jetstar Pacific, VietJetAir and Vietnam Airlines. The airport was upgraded from military to civil use in late 2012, with the first scheduled flight starting in February 2013. Thanh Hoa City is the capital of Thanh Hoa Province, by the Ma River and around 150 kilometres south of Hanoi.
