Vietnam Airlines joins SkyTeam

10 June 2010

Vietnam Airlines joined SkyTeam on Thursday, becoming the first Southeast Asian member carrier of the global airline alliance.

Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung joined Thursday’s ceremony held at Hanoi’s Noi Bai International Airport for the event.

The national flag carrier, which is looking to become one of Southeast Asia’s leading carriers, expects this full membership to boost its Asia presence.

The carrier will add 20 new destinations to the SkyTeam network, which allows passengers to earn and redeem frequent flyer miles when traveling on member airlines.
