Vietnam’s flag carrier and industry behemoth Air France signed an official agreement on Tuesday to enhance their overall collaboration and tap the overly growing market of traveling between Europe and Vietnam.
The companies have been in tight cooperation for more than 20 years when it comes to aircraft maintenance as well as crew training. They also shared codes back in 2010. However, their current agreement is supposed to deepen and further the relationship even more. The main reason for this is to ensure that everything is handled as per the highest industry standards when it comes to traveling between Europe and Vietnam, the latter of which is turning into a very popular destination.
Under the terms of the agreement, which is set to begin in November, the Airlines of Vietnam’s passengers are going to be able to connect to more than 70 destinations in Europe from the current 14. And also, the passengers of Air France will be able to reach more than 20 Vietnamese destinations from the current 3.
This is obviously a very substantial improvement and one which reflects the interest of both parties. Even though Vietnamese Airlines are entitled to more destinations and the deal seems better for them, it’s a matter of nothing but geography. This is something that you ought to keep in mind when it comes to it. In any case, the transit between the Old Continent and Vietnam is designated to become one which is easy to go through and it’s only going to become easier.
