DANANG, 29 November 2023: VietJet Air is planning a new direct route from Danang, a coastal city in central Vietnam, to Kaohsiung in Taiwan, scheduled to launch on 14 January 2024, according to provisional airline schedules.
Kaohsiung is a major port city in southern Taiwan famed for its skyscrapers, such as the 248m-tall Tuntex Sky Tower, and its diversity of parks. Its focal point is the so-called “Love River,” with walking paths and cafes along its banks. Shopping options range from high-end malls to the Liuhe and Ruifeng night markets.
Provisionary timetables suggest Vietjet will serve the route with A320s flying three weekly services from Danang on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday starting on 14 January 2024.
Flight VJ8556 will depart Danang at 1205 and arrive in Kaohsiung at 1530
Flight VJ8557 will depart Kaohsiung at 1630 and arrive in Danang at 1755.
Vietjet already operates daily direct flights from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to Kaohsiung.
