Vietnam's national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines and Indian Airlines have announced sharply reduced round-trip ticket prices on the New Delhi-Bangkok-Hanoi route as an effort to lure more Indian tourists to Vietnam.

At a seminar entitled "Vietnam - a charming venue for Indian tourists" within a Vietnam Gastronomy and Tourism Week in India, the two airlines said they will nearly halve the normal ticket price to US $440.

Vietnam Airlines also introduced its services at the May 12 seminar, which attracted the attention of Indian media and tourist companies.

Representing one-sixth of the population of the world, India is considered a potential tourist market for Vietnam.

Last year, Vietnam welcomed nearly 3.5 million foreign tourists, and it expects to receive 4 million tourists this year. However, the number of Indian visitors has been modest.
