Danang Airport on Vietnam’s central coast, which sits within 2-hour flights of both Hong Kong and Singapore, will receive more chartered flights from Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea in the next few months, a local tour operator said.

The central city is currently greeting air travelers using Shanghai Airlines’ twice-a-week charter service from the carrier’s hub, Shanghai.

Danang already accommodates international flights from Singapore, Guangzhou, Shanghai and Taipei, in addition to regular connecting services from both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Foreign carriers seen there include Silk Air, China Southern, and TransAsia Airlines.

On November 11, Danang Airport will see the first chartered flight from Hong Kong, according to Danang-based tour operator Vitours, a key local partner that caters the forthcoming chartered flights. The deal for Hong Kong will last three months, the source said.

Frequent chartered flights from Taiwan to Danang will start on December 26 and also run for three months, Vitours said.

Other chartered flights will take travelers from South Korea’s Seoul to the Vietnamese city, starting on the first day of 2011, according to the source.

In Danang, the golf and airline offerings appear to have come of age simultaneously. The Vietnam Golf Coast, a new partnership of golf and beach resorts in the sunny city, was established in mid-August.

The founding members are Montgomerie Links Vietnam, Danang Golf Club, The Nam Hai, Life Resort Danang, and Golfasian Vietnam.

Montgomerie Links Vietnam was designed by sitting European Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie and opened in August 2009. It was recently ranked 7th on the list of top courses in all of Southeast Asia. 

Meanwhile, Danang Golf Club was crafted by legend Greg Norman and opened in May 2010.

The Nam Hai is a luxurious and all-villa resort located on the coastal road linking Danang with Hoi An Ancient Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Opened in March 2010, the five-star hotel Life Resort Danang is set on five hectares fronting beautiful Bac My An Beach.

Golfasian Vietnam is a leading golf tour operator in Southeast Asia. It has been named the official tour operator of the Vietnam Golf Coast.
