Vietnam Airlines (VNA) and the PVI Insurance Corporation held a launch ceremony on October 11 in Hanoi for TripCARE Comprehensive Travel Insurance.

TripCARE is being provided by the two corporations in cooperation with Chubb Vietnam Insurance and is for passengers of Vietnam Airlines buying tickets on its website for domestic flights or flights departing from Vietnam.

It has a high level of coverage and comprehensive benefits. Personal accident benefits are VND1.6 billion ($70,400) and medical expenses up to VND1 billion ($44,000). In particular, newborns (aged from seven days to two years) traveling with TripCARE customers are insured for free.

Mr. Trinh Ngoc Thanh, Deputy General Director of VNA, told the launch that its cooperation with PVI is one of the steps VNA is taking to understand the needs of customers, aiming to provide products, services, and packages when they purchase tickets. “It also affirms our continuous efforts to conduct safe flights with comprehensive services,” he added.

Mr. Truong Quoc Lam, General Director of the PVI Insurance Corporation, said the launch of TripCARE marks the first time a Vietnamese insurer has successfully sold a travel insurance product through an airline’s e-commerce site. “The cooperation between two leading brands in Vietnam provides optimal support and safety on every journey for all passengers of Vietnam Airlines,” he said.

VNA operates 90 routes with an average of 400 flights a day. It has a fleet of modern aircraft of various types, such as Boeing 787 Dreamliners, Airbus A350-900 XWBs, Airbus A330s, and Airbus A321s.

The PVI Insurance Corporation has developed a retail network nationwide, with 33 member units and 3,000 agents, and leads in the field of major industrial insurance such as aviation, energy, marine, and technical assets.

Chubb is the world’s largest asset insurance corporation and is listed on the New York stock market. Chubb Vietnam Insurance provides premium and specialized insurance services in assets, marine, finance, energy, and health.
