High-quality train carriage begins service on Hanoi-Hai Phong route


HANOI (Vietnam News/Asia News Network): The Hanoi Railway Transport Joint Stock Company (Haraco) has put into service a high-quality carriage on the Hanoi-Hai Phong route.

Passengers choosing the service, which started Wednesday (July 6), can enjoy free Wi-Fi and a bottle of drinking water plus a wet towel.

They can buy tickets at railway stations and train ticket agents nationwide or purchase online via the hotline 1900109, through the sector's websites dsvn.vn and vetauonline.vn as well as mobile wallet apps like Viettel Pay, VnPay, Momo and Vimo.

According to the Vietnam Railways Corporation, the number of passengers on Hanoi -Hai Phong route has increased remarkably.

Dang Tien Manh, head of Hai Phong Station, said that in the past two years, due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, the revenue of the sector had decreased significantly and many trains were stopped. The demand for the route surged after the Covid-19 pandemic was brought under control.

The food tour by train has particularly helped attract the interest of young people, thereby sending the number of customers up by 70-80 per cent.

This is thanks to the efforts of the Hải Phòng Department of Tourism, which has published a map of local delicacies and offered free guides for passengers at the weekend.

Currently, the number of visitors going to the city is up by 2,000 per day, and is 900 per train per trip, a record in recent years.
