Vietnam Airlines and Vingroup officially signed a cooperation agreement on October 4 to build products combining aviation and tourism on routes and accommodation, marking a new development in Vietnam’s aviation - tourism - services market.

The objective of the agreement is to develop the brand names of Vietnam Airlines and Vingroup in order to increase the competitiveness of products and services, build the regular customer programs of both sides, and bring optimal benefits to customers.

The two sides will cooperate to connect aviation and tourism products on Vietnam Airlines’ entire network and all the tourist accommodation of Vingroup’s Vinpearl. Cooperation will also be seen in investment and the development of routes in the form of regular and charter flights from domestic and international points to Vinpearl’s tourism and entertainment facilities.

With this cooperation agreement, customers will be the greatest beneficiaries when using aviation and tourism services. The “2-in-1” products available will help customers purchase packages with air services and luxury resort and comfort while saving on cost and time. The cooperation also provides customers with flexibility in selecting Vietnam Airlines’ flights and Vinpearl’s accommodation.

Vietnam Airlines and Vingroup will also intensify their extensive customer program to bring the best products and utilities to meet the needs of customers.

Members of Vietnam Airlines can switch from the Golden Lotus Plus program to accruals using non-airline services, and for the first time Vingroup’s VinID member cards will have special benefits outside of the system.

Mr. Duong Tri Thanh, General Director of Vietnam Airlines, said the relationship between Vietnam Airlines and Vingroup has risen to a new height. “The comprehensive cooperation agreement between two of the leading companies in Vietnam will be a new step forward inspiring the supply chain linking Vietnamese brands,” he said. “This cooperation will not only help Vietnam Airlines develop its aviation and tourism packages but also enhance its competitiveness in the market, bringing practical benefits to customers.”

Mr. Nguyen Viet Quang, Vice Chairman and General Director of Vingroup, said the comprehensive cooperation agreement opens up a promising business field for Vingroup, directly supporting the goal of expanding combined services in aviation and tourism to bring the greatest benefits to customers. “With a desire to become the largest resort brand in Vietnam and aiming to match world-class resorts, this comprehensive cooperative relationship will bring great benefits for both sides,” Mr. Quang said.

Previously, in December 2017, Vingroup cooperated with Vietnam Airlines to implement a program changing cumulative points from VinID cards to Golden Lotus Bonus cards. Customers participating in the program can change points quickly and flexibly with application software installed on websites and smartphones.
