​Vietnam Airlines inks deal with Poland’s LOT for Warsaw-Vietnam flights

Friday, December 01, 2017, 13:24 GMT+7

Vietnam Airlines (VNA) and Poland’s flag carrier LOT Polish Airlines on Thursday signed an agreement to jointly operate flights between the Polish capital of Warsaw and Vietnam’s Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

The signing ceremony in Ho Chi Minh City was organized by the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI) in cooperation with Poland’s Ministry of Economic Development and the Polish Investment and Trade Agency.

The deal was part of the working agenda of Polish President Andrzej Duda’s official state visit to Vietnam between November 27 and 30.

VNA and LOT are set to jointly operate flights between Warsaw and Hanoi/Ho Chi Minh City, with transit stops in Paris, Frankfurt, Moscow, and London.

Accordingly, the Vietnamese flag carrier will operate flights between Vietnam and the transit cities while LOT manages flights between the transit cities and Warsaw.

Passengers who purchase tickets for both legs of their Vietnam-Poland trip will enjoy lower airfares than buying separate tickets.

“The history of cooperation between Vietnam Airlines and LOT Polish Airlines dates back to 1998,” said Trinh Ngoc Thanh,VNA executive vice president.

“This agreement marks another milestone in that history, offering passengers more options for direct Warsaw-Europe flights, domestic flights within Poland, and flights between Vietnam and Europe, Australia, and Asia.”

Between 2011 and 2016, the number of passengers travelling between Vietnam and Poland grew an average of 5.5 percent each year to reach 24,000 passengers in 2016, according to official statistics.

Passengers flying from Poland to Vietnam account for over 90 percent of that amount.

Established in 1929, LOT is one of the world’s oldest operating airlines, servicing a network of over 80 destinations in Europe, the Middle East, North America, and Asia.
