The air route was launched on a trial basis on July 21 as the outcome of cooperation between Can Tho authorities, leading Vietnamese tour operator Vietravel, the Thai Administration of Tourism and the Thai Vietjet Air.

However, Director for the southwest region of Vietravel Truong Van Vinh said that during the trial period, there was an increase in the number of passengers from Can Tho to Bangkok but a strong decrease in the number of passengers from Bangkok to Can Tho.

As such, the company decided to close the air route and will resume services around the Lunar New Year, which will fall in February next year, and the summer of 2016 to serve people in the region, he added.
