The first phase of a two-part interline agreement between Vietjet and Qatar Airways has come into effect.
The deal enables Qatar passengers to travel to and from points in Vietnam and Taiwan served directly by its new partner. The next phase is due to be introduced shortly and will allow Vietjet passengers to fly to more than 150 points around the world served by Qatar Airways using a single reservation across both airlines’ networks.
The Doha-based carrier’s group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “The new agreement with Vietjet will offer our passengers even more choices, providing them with an easy connection in Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi before transferring to Qatar Airways flights.”
Vietjet vice-president Nguyen Thi Thuy Binh added: “This partnership is a pillar of Vietjet’s strategy to diversify our services with an aim at offering our passengers greater travel opportunities and connections to various points in the world.
“We will continue to partner with other airlines based on advanced technology platforms to better benefit our passengers."
The deal follows Qatar Airways’ announcement it is to launch two non-stop operations, a double-daily and 10 flights a week respectively, connecting Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City with Doha.
