Ha Long Heli Tours was launched recently in Ha Long Bay by the Northern Vietnam Helicopter Company under the Vietnam Helicopter Corporation, offering tourists a new way to enjoy the scenic beauty of the Bay from above.

Two new US-produced Bell-505 helicopters will be used, designed with two pilots and three passenger seats and a glass cabin, providing wide vision and comfort for those experiencing the UNESCO-recognized natural heritage site.

The two helicopters will be stationed at Tuan Chau heliport to serve guests at any time without earlier bookings. Guests have three options to choose from: 12, 25, or 40-minute trips with different journeys to popular sites such as Thien Cung Cave, Cock Islet, Titop Islet, and Bai Tu Long Bay, among others. Prices start from $125 per passenger.

At the launch ceremony, the Northern Vietnam Helicopter Company signed a cooperation agreement with the FastGo Vietnam JSC, allowing tourists to easily book the service through FastSky, a helicopter ride-hailing app run by FastGo Vietnam.

The new service is expected to offer a new experience in Ha Long Bay, diversify tourism products, and contribute to the province’s tourism development.

In addition to sightseeing tours, the Northern Vietnam Helicopter Company also organizes flight services with Bell-505 helicopters on Hanoi - Tuan Chau - Hanoi and Tuan Chau - Van Don - Tuan Chau routes, as well as charter flights, aerial survey tours, event tours, wedding photography, and filming tours.
