JTA to offer Okinawa-Vietnam charter flights

September 21, 2019 Ryukyu Shimpo

JTA (Japan Transocean Air) President Noriyuki Aoki announced that one round-trip flight between Naha and Ho Chi Minh will be available for charter in December and again in February 2020. JTA has had success with its Seoul, Taiwan and Hong Kong routes; the charter to Vietnam will be its first venture into Southeast Asia. The charter for December goes on sale September 30, and will utilize the Boeing 737-800 aircraft, which seats 165.

This is the first international charter flight JTA has made available in two years, since the Hong Kong-Naha flight in January 2017. International charter flights is a stepping stone for JTA to eventually operate regular international routes.
