Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam Airlines and Vingroup have signed a cooperation agreement to develop and provide combined aviation and tourism products for all of their air routes and tourism accommodation facilities.

The national flag carrier said the partnership aims to enhance the competitiveness of their services and bring the most benefit to customers.

Under the deal, the two sides will invest in and develop regular and charter flights from domestic and international destinations to tourism and entertainment facilities of Vinpearl – Vingroup’s tourism brand.

In these two-for-one products, customers will buy one package that contains both aviation and tourism services, helping them to save time and costs, the carrier said, noting that it will be flexible for customers to select Vietnam Airlines flights and Vinpearl accommodation facilities.

Vietnam Airlines added that the two firms will also step up cooperation in customer service programmes to provide top products and services that match the demand from customers.

General Director of Vietnam Airlines Duong Tri Thanh said the comprehensive cooperation agreement between the two major businesses of Vietnam will inspire the connection of Vietnamese trademarks. This collaboration will not only help Vietnam Airlines develop all-in aviation and tourism products and promote its competitiveness on the market, but also generate practical benefits for customers of both firms.

Echoing this view, Vice Chairman and General Director of Vingroup Nguyen Viet Quang said the deal has opened up a promising business field for his group and directly supported Vingroup in creating combined aviation and tourism services for the benefit of customers. –VNA
