According to Vietnam Airlines, the two carriers signed a two-way codeshare agreement in August last year, in which Delta will offer seats on the Vietnamese carrier’s flights.

The partnership between Vietnam Airlines and Delta Air Lines is expected to officially go into operation this month. Accordingly, passengers only need to book and check in with Vietnam Airlines or Delta Air Lines for the entire journey, helping travellers visit famous destinations in Viet Nam and the US.

Vietnam Airlines flights are allowed to display Delta Air Lines numbers (starting with DL*). Delta Air Lines will sell flight tickets for Vietnam Airlines between Ha Noi and Tokyo to serve passengers who want to continue their flights to the US.

Delta Air Lines is also allowed to transport passengers, goods and correspondence in the form of codeshare co-operation between the US and Viet Nam, which is under the regulations of the Viet Nam-US Air Transport Agreement in 2003.

Flight numbers starting with VN (Vietnam Airlines) are displayed not only on Delta Air Lines flights but also on associated airlines, including Compass Airlines, Endeavor Air, GoJet Airlines, Republic Airlines and SkyWest Airlines on journeys to 25 destinations in the US.

With this licensing decision, Vietnam Airlines has perfected the right to exploit routes to and from the US in all forms including regular operation, chartering and two-way partnership, which are important steps for the company to explore the US-Viet Nam market, and create a habit for passengers flying to the US on Vietnam Airlines flights.
