Vietjet has announced its interline partnership with Doha-based Qatar Airways, an agreement which will allow Qatar Airways’ passengers to travel to and from points in Vietnam and in Taiwan served directly by Vietjet.
The first phase came into effect this September with Qatar Airways commencing two non-stop flight operations connecting Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City with Doha with frequencies of double daily flights and ten weekly flights, respectively.
Qatar Airways chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, 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 with an easy connection in Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi before transferring to their Qatar Airways flights.”
Vietjet’s passengers will soon be able to fly to more than 150 points around the world served by Qatar Airways using a single reservation across both airlines’ networks.
Vietjet vice president, Nguyen Thi Thuy Binh, said: “This partnership is a pillar of Vietjet’s strategy to diversify our services with an aim at offering our passengers travel opportunities to different parts of the world.
“We will continue to partner with other airlines based on advanced technology platforms to better benefit our passengers.”
