According to Hoang, the resumption of the Vietnam Airlines – Air France joint venture agreement will give customers more flight options and optimize products and services between France, Europe and Vietnam.

In 2017, a joint venture agreement was launched by the two national airlines, however flights were suspended in 2020 due to the impact of the pandemic.

The cooperation between the two airlines will take effect again from March 26th, strengthening the link between the respective transshipment centers of the two firms: Noi Bai (Hanoi), Tan Son Nhat (HCMC) and Charles de Gaulle (Paris) – one of the largest gateways in the world.

Accordingly, Air France will operate a joint venture on Hanoi – Paris flights of Vietnam Airlines, with a schedule of 6 flights/week from Hanoi with number VN019 from Hanoi to Paris, and VN018 from Paris to Hanoi on the modern wide-body Airbus A350.

Vietnam Airlines will operate a joint venture on Air France’s Ho Chi Minh – Paris flights with flight numbers AF258 from Paris to Ho Chi Minh City and AF253 from Ho Chi Minh City to Paris.

France is one of the largest and most important markets of Vietnam Airlines in Europe since opening the first direct flight to Paris in 2003. The annual passenger capacity of Vietnam Airlines transporting between Vietnam and France in 2019 reached about 570,000 passengers.
