Vietnam Airlines halts selling domestic low-cost air tickets


QĐND – Thursday, July 01, 2010, 21:23 (GMT+7)

Vietnam Airlines (VNA) suddenly announced it would temporarily cease applying its special airfare scheme for agencies participating in a domestic tourism stimulus program between July 1 and August 15, 2010.


Tran The Dung, vice deputy head of the HCM City Tourism Stimulus Group, also director of the Young Generation Tourist Company, said the decision will negatively impact tourist companies and the tourism stimulus program “Vietnam – your destination’’ launched by the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism.


Participating in the stimulus program, VNA had pledged to cut airfares for domestic tours provided by travel agents that join the program until the end of this year, excepting specific holidays.


Travel agents speculated that perhaps so many customers have exploited the low-cost air tickets that VNA had to adjust its program.


Under the Vietnam Airlines’ special airfare program, the HCMC Tourism Stimulus Group attracted 4,052 tourists to central and northern provinces in all-inclusive tours packaged together with low-cost airfares this June.


Tours were offered at rates discounted by 30-35 percent. The number of tourists soared by three times compared to that of May, and ten times over the same period last year when the first tourism stimulus campaign, “Impressive Vietnam,” launched.


After the launch of the first tourism stimulus campaign, authorities and businesses of Vietnam’s tourism industry announced the second tourism stimulus campaign of 2010, “Vietnam – Your destination,” with the hope of attracting more domestic travelers as well as foreign tourists. The program’s goal is to welcome 4.2 million International arrivals and 27-28 million of domestic tourists.


Realizing the opportunity to boost revenues, many businesses within the tourism industry have come to support the new campaign. Hotels, restaurants and other businesses related to tourism have dedicated a variety of discounts to customers participating in the program.

The line outside the guesthouse at Cho Ray Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City was a grateful one. Most were so poor that if the volunteers from the Poor Patient Sponsor Association hadn’t begun serving free breakfasts, they would have gone without.


A lorry carrying hot meals from the association’s Nhon Hoa Poor Patient Sponsor Branch slowly pulled up in front of the guesthouse.


By 5am, poor patients were being served their meals, and the “thank yous” were being passed around abundantly.


Ms. Muoi from the Mekong Delta Province of Kien Giang, who has taken care of her brother’s head injuries since he was in a traffic accident two months ago, said the free breakfast had helped ease the financial her family had been suffering from ever since her brother was hospitalized.


Nguyen Thi Kim Loan from the Mekong Delta Province of Long An has been loking after her father, a serious burn victim, at the hospital for a long time.


She said she was eternally grateful to the volunteers from bringing the free food.


Most of people gathered that morning said they hoped that the free breakfasts could be provided not only at Cho Ray Hospital, but also other hospitals as well.


Volunteer Ba Tam said that he and his friends had begun preparing the food at 11pm the night before. He said they cooked until 3am but still felt happy sharing the fruits of their labor with unlucky people.


The free breakfast program for poor patients was begun by the Nhon Hoa Poor Patient Sponsor Branch and Cho Ray Hospital in early March this year.


In just three months, the project has provided 50,000 rations, including rice dishes, porridge, noodles and bread, worth VND300 million (US$16,000) in total.

Tickets for sci-fi blockbuster “Avatar” sell out

In Vietnam Culture on December 21, 2009 at 4:05 pm

Tickets for the 3D version of the science fiction film ”Avatar” written and directed by James Cameron were fully booked for the premiere in Vietnam on December 18, said ticket office staff at Megastar cinemas in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.








                   A scene in the “Avatar”

Costing VND80,000-100,000 (US$4-6), the 3D tickets have sold out for screenings in Vietnam from now until December 29. Cinemas now have tickets left for 2D showings only.


Megastar Cineplex says it hopes to earn US$1 million from box office sales nationwide.


The film produced by Lightstorm Entertainment and distributed by 20th Century Fox cost US$250 million to make.


“Avatar” is Oscar-winning director Cameron’s first dramatic feature since the record-breaking “Titanic” back in 1997. The new film is a science-fiction fantasy set on a verdant planet called Pandora and follows the adventures of a US Marine played by Sam Worthington.

The famously perfectionist director first came up with the concept for “Avatar” 14 years ago but decided not to make the film until technology was advanced enough to enable with his vision.

At once stunning and rousing, the picture is regarded as the most ambitious 3D film ever to appeal to a worldwide audience.
