EL AL and Vietnam Airlines Launch Codeshare Flights

EL AL and Vietnam Airlines have launched codeshare flights between Tel Aviv and Bangkok and Tel Aviv - Hong Kong, to both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh (Saigon).

Flights are operated by Vietnam Airlines on the Hanoi / Ho Chi Minh - Bangkok / Hong Kong route and by El Al Israel Airlines on the Bangkok / Hong Kong - Tel Aviv route.

The codeshare enables passengers to check-in just once, receiving the boarding pass for their connecting flights at the original point of departure.

Gonen Usishkin, CEO of El AL Israel Airlines, said, “Over the last number of years there has been growing traffic between Israel and Vietnam and it was important that the two flag carriers be able to offer our combined passengers a product that includes flying both the flag carriers. We are pleased that we were able to launch this codeshare with Vietnam Airlines and see as this is another integral aspect to building our strategy for future growth with other leading international airlines.”

 Israel is one of Vietnam's most important partners in the Middle East with total bilateral trade of over US$1 billion per annum.

Duong Tri Thanh, President and CEO of Vietnam Airlines, said, “We are thrilled to expand the partnership with El Al Israel Airlines in time for the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between the two countries. The forging of a codeshare significantly enhances passenger convenience and boosts Vietnam Airlines’ presence in the Middle East. Our recent cooperation with several international airlines has reaffirmed our ongoing commitment to bolstering our services and expanding our reach beyond our network.”
