By the end of October, 2011, tourists could definitely get to enjoy the excitement brought by private helicopter service in Vietnam for the first time.
This service results from the collaboration between Vietnam Air Service Company (VASCO), which belongs to Vietnam Airlines Corporation, and Azur Helicopter Company, the leading French helicopter company.
One soon can charter a helicopter (Eurocopter AS350 B2 ) and make a flight from Tan Son Nhat airport, Ho Chi Minh City to popular sites in southern provinces. In particular, it takes one hour to arrive at Phan Thiet and only 35 minutes to reach Vung Tau from Ho Chi Minh City. Each helicopter can accommodate up to four passengers, besides the two pilots.
Not only being a convenient and time-saving transportation service, private helicopter also offers tourists one-in-a-life-time experience. From the new height, tourists can now enjoy the panoramic and breath-taking view of Vietnam’s landscape and should not miss an amazing capture.
