Qatar Airways chief executive Akbar Al Baker said that the company was delighted to welcome Vietjet to its growing roster of interline partners as they allow to provide a more seamless experience for passengers.

“The new agreement with Vietjet will offer our passengers even more choice, providing them an easy connection in Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi before transferring to their Qatar Airways flights,” said Baker.

Vietjet vice president Nguyen Thi Thuy Binh commented that this partnership was a pillar of Vietjet’s strategy to diversify its services with an aim to offer passengers travel opportunities to a great variety of destinations around the world.

Qatar Airways is commencing two non-stop operations connecting Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City with Doha, offering two daily and 10 weekly flights, respectively.

Previously, Vietjet and Japan Airlines agreed to codeshare/interline on their flights between Japan and Vietnam, their domestic services, and flights between Vietnam and other Asian countries. The two carriers also cooperate in various areas, including a frequent flier partnership, aircraft operations and maintenance, and ground handling services and training.
