Vietnam based carrier Vietjet Air announces its interline partnership with Qatar Airways, an agreement which will allow Qatar Airways passengers to travel to and from points in Vietnam not served directly by Qatar Airways using a single reservation across both airlines’ networks.
The new partnership will allow passengers traveling to and from eight new domestic points within Vietnam to connect via Qatar Airways’ existing gateways in Vietnam – Ho Chi Minh City (SGN) and Hanoi (HAN) – providing them with a more seamless travel experience. The agreement includes the popular coastal city Da Nang (DAD), as well as Ban Me Thuot (BMV), Dalat (DLI), Hai Phong (HPH), Nha Trang (CXR), Phu Quoc (PQC), Pleiku (PXU), Vinh City (VII) and one international point, Taipei (TPE).
Qatar Airways first commenced operations to Ho Chi Minh City on March 25, 2007. The airline was also the first Gulf carrier to offer non-stop service to Vietnam’s largest city. In addition, Hanoi was added to the airline’s fast-growing global network in November 2010. Passengers will benefit from frequency increases to both cities starting from January 01, 2018, with Qatar Airways flying double-daily to Hanoi and providing 10 flights a week to Ho Chi Minh City.
