The codeshare agreement comes after the signing of a MOU between the two flag carriers in 2018, and Vietnam Airlines’ announcement it will move operations to Sheremetyevo Airport in July this year.

Le Hong Ha, Executive Vice President of Vietnam Airlines, said, “The commencement of our partnership with Aeroflot allows us to unleash the combined power of our networks and boost our presence in the region. It offers travelers greater choice and flexibility when planning their trips. We are thrilled to welcome more passengers from Russia onboard Vietnam Airlines flights to experience the 4-star service quality and explore the world’s most sought-after tourist destinations.”
