Cam Ranh International Terminal Joint Stock Company revealed on September 16 that it has recently activated a plan aimed at welcoming back foreign tourists from countries that have already brought the COVID-19 pandemic under control.

According to the schedule, Asiana Airlines (OZ) is anticipated to launch flights both to and from Cam Ranh International Airport on September 18.

A flight from Incheon in the Republic of Korea (RoK) is expected to land at Cam Ranh at 10 p.m. on September 18, while the return flight from Cam Ranh to Incheon is scheduled to depart at 11:10 p.m. on the same day.

Le Thi Hong Minh, general director of Cam Ranh International Terminal Joint Stock Company, said there will be 37 passengers on the arriving flight and 30 passengers on the return flight.

The incoming flight will bring in experts from the RoK to work at Hyundai Vinashin Factory, while the outbound flight will repatriate Korean citizens in Vietnam back to their homeland.

The reopening of the incoming flights represents a positive sign for the rebound of the local tourism industry, said Minh.

Ahead of welcoming foreign travelers with a "vaccine passport" to Khanh Hoa, Cam Ranh International Terminal Joint Stock Company has regularly disinfected and cleaned reception areas.

Khanh Hoa’s authorities recently gave the green-light to the local tourism sector’s proposal to welcome international visitors with a vaccine passport to the locality. They assigned the tourism sector to finalise the plan and submit it again for approval.
