Al Baker said: “Qatar Airways is very pleased to extend its reach into Vietnam by launching our third gateway into this beautiful country. The addition of Da Nang to our global network further demonstrates our commitment to the Far East region, a highly important market for Qatar Airways. And we are excited for passengers travelling to and from central Vietnam to experience our award-winning service and product for themselves. With 56 weekly passenger flights to and from Vietnam, we take great pride in in our role in bringing passengers  to and from this beautiful county and also being a trade enabler and connector for Vietnamese and international businesses.”

Commenting on the new route launch, the Vietnamese Ambassador to the State of Qatar, Dinh Thao, said: “This year marks the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Qatar, and we are delighted to welcome Qatar Airways to Da Nang, its third Vietnamese destination. The direct flight to Doha will play a crucial role in connecting central Vietnam passengers and freight to the rest of the world. With the increased connectivity, we also look forward to welcoming more tourists to Da Nang, the tourist capital of South Central Vietnam.”
