Passengers travelling with Vietnam Airlines between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City as well as on international flights departing from these cities will get to enjoy Canh oranges – a popular variety of oranges from Vietnam.
Harvested from Luc Ngan District in Bac Giang Province, the airline will serve these oranges from January 2-15 this year. Vietnam Airlines said about 2,000 kg of Canh oranges are expected to be consumed on its flights during this period.
Originating in Vietnam, this is the peak season for Canh oranges, according to Vietnam Airlines.
“To offer passengers the freshest, premium quality oranges, Vietnam Airlines has selected those harvested from VietGap certified farms of Luc Ngan District, Bac Giang Province – the largest fruit-growing area in the North, gifted with a spectacular climate and fertile soil that favors fruit cultivation,” said the carrier in a press release.
Recently, Vietnam Airlines has introduced passengers to a variety of seasonal fruits harvested from Vietnam; for example, green-skinned pomelo, Hoa Loc mango, Tay Ninh melon, Binh Thuan dragon fruit, Luc Ngan litchi, and Hung Yen longan as part of its “the four seasons of fruit – four seasons of love” initiative which started in November 2018.
The airline recently announced that it would launch a new route between Da Nang and Shanghai from January 19, 2020. This marks the 19th Vietnam Airlines route between Vietnam and China.
