Vietnam Airlines and Turkish Airlines Expand Cooperation on Air Cargo Transportation

Our Bureau - : Dec 5, 2023 - : 8:52 pm

Vietnam Airlines and Turkish Airlines recently signed an agreement to further foster cooperation in the field of air cargo transportation.

Vietnam Airlines and Turkish Airlines intend to enhance cooperation in the field of cargo transport and will conduct research to enable a potential launch of an air cargo joint venture providing customers with the benefits of a larger, faster network with enhanced direct flights, a wider range of destinations and increased frequencies.

“The cooperation between Vietnam Airlines and Turkish Airlines was established on the basis of mutual benefit,” said Dang Ngoc Hoa, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Vietnam Airlines. “Turkish Airlines will benefit from expanding the scale of its transportation network to previously limited areas such as Oceania, and Northeast Asia through the advantages offered by Vietnam’s central geographical location as a transit point. Furthermore, by using freighters and connecting to Turkish Airlines’ global network of 345 destinations around the world, Vietnam Airlines will be able to significantly expand its scale.”

“Asia is one of our most important markets,” said Turkish Airlines’ CEO Bilal Ekşi. “Our efforts to increase our presence on this prominent continent continue unabated with our competent teams and R&D activities. In an era where global aviation is shifting from West to East, these efforts are even more meaningful. I hope the collaboration we have started with Vietnam Airlines, currently focused on our air cargo brand Turkish Cargo, but planned to be developed in different categories in the future, will be beneficial and fruitful for both countries and both flag carriers.”

Today’s signing has important significance in the relationship between the two national airlines. In June this year, the two sides signed a codeshare cooperation to provide more flexible and diverse flight options for passengers on routes between Vietnam and Türkiye as well as neighboring areas. Passengers can make reservations and buy tickets on Turkish Airlines and Vietnam Airlines to fly between Istanbul – Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and between Hanoi – Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City – Da Nang.
