Qatar Airways signs partnership with Vietjet
Qatar Airways has entered into an interline partnership with Vietnam-based Vietjet Air.
The airline in a statement by Mohamed Elkahlout of Corporate Communications Department said that the agreement would allow its 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 would allow passengers travelling 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 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).
Mr. Akbar Al Baker, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive said: “We are delighted to welcome Vietjet to our growing roster of interline partners as they allow us to provide a more seamless experience for our passengers. The new agreement with Vietjet will offer our passengers even more choice, providing them an easy connection in Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi before transferring to their Qatar Airways flights.
“Qatar Airways is delighted to celebrate 10 years in Vietnam this year, and it is all thanks to the Vietnamese market’s support that we have been able to expand our footprint in this growing market.
Qatar Airways first commenced operations to Ho Chi Minh City on 25 March 2007. The airline was also the first Gulf carrier to offer non-stop service to Vietnam’s largest city.
