Vietnam Airlines has officially joined the SkyTeam global airline alliance.

Vietnam Airlines customers can now earn and redeem frequent flyer miles when traveling on flights of all other SkyTeam member airlines. Customers from the other SkyTeam frequent flyer programs can achieve the same when flying Vietnam Airlines.

 “We are proud to welcome the first carrier from Southeast Asia in our midst,” said Leo van Wijk, Chairman of the SkyTeam Governing Board. “Asia is an important and strategic growth market for SkyTeam and we are well are on track to strengthen our network offering in this part of the world. Together with our current members China Southern and Korean Air and future member China Eastern, Vietnam Airlines brings us closer to becoming the leading alliance for Asia. By adding 20 new destinations to the SkyTeam network, the joining of Vietnam Airlines marks an important step in this direction.”

“Apart from adding new destinations to our SkyTeam Round the World Pass, Vietnam Airlines will enrich the opportunities of our Asia Pass, enabling customers to travel through Asia on a single ticket in a more economical way,” added Marie-Joseph Malé, SkyTeam’s Managing Director. “Furthermore, Vietnam Airlines will be included in all our global deals we offer our corporate clients. Our newest member will also be part of SkyTeam Global Meetings, our service providing event organizers with helpful planning tools to bring people together from all over the world.”

As the national flag carrier of Vietnam, headquartered in Hanoi, Vietnam Airlines flies 75 routes to 20 domestic and 26 international destinations with more than 290 daily flights. Operating a young fleet of 70 modern aircraft mainly including Boeing 777, Airbus A330, A321/320s, the airline expects to further expand its fleet to 115 and 165 aircraft by 2015 and 2020, respectively.
