The national carrier Vietnam Airlines (VNA) is offering 25–30% discounts on flights to the Republic of Korea (RoK) as part of a VNA and Korea Tourism Organisation (KTO) campaign launched on November 12.

Under the campaign, flights from Vietnam to the RoK departing between November 15, 2013 and March 31, 2014 will be eligible for the discounts (excluding the Lunar New Year holiday). The KTO’s Hanoi office wants to see a 20% improvement in Vietnamese tourist numbers from 2012’s benchmark.

The VNA and KTO will also cooperate on organising the 2013 Korea Travel Awards.

Vietnam Airlines Northern Regional Office Deputy Director Le Kim Anh said the two countries boast huge potential for lucrative tourism cooperation.
