Vietnam Airlines will add three special flights to Changzhou on January 27, not one, for Vietnamese football fans to cheer on their team in the final of the U/23 Asia Cup against Uzbekistan.

Two flights will leave Hanoi and one from Ho Chi Minh City, departing early in the morning and returning in the evening on the same day.

The national flag carrier will cooperate with a number of travel companies in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, including Blue Sky, Hanoi Redtours, Saigon Tourist and Vietravel, to combine air tickets and travel services. Such package tours will include return air tickets, a Chinese visa, tickets for the final, tour guides, and dining. Vietnam Airlines will provide free transfers between the airport and the stadium.

It will also install a giant screen at Ly Thai To Park in Hanoi so that fans who can’t make it to China can watch the game in a pulsating atmosphere. A cultural event entitled “Vietnam Airlines-Spring Take-off” will also be held at the park.

In defeating Qatar in the semi-final after a penalty shootout on Tuesday, Vietnam became the first Southeast Asian country to reach the final of the U/23 Asia Cup.

The national flag carrier has also offered to cover the travel and accommodation costs of two relatives of each member of the team to attend the final.
