Vietnam Airlines offers 10% off domestic and international flights to mark seven years of online bookings.
Vietnam Airlines will celebrate the seventh birthday of its website by offering a special discount of 10 per cent on all fares (except U,A, and P booking classes) on all routes for online bookings made from October 7 to October 9.
The promotion applies to flights on domestic routes from October 7 to December 30, January 5 to January 22, 2016, and February 23 to March 31, 2016. The travel period for international routes is from October 7 to December 14, January 11 to January 22, 2016, and February 21 to March 31, 2016.
Vietnam Airlines officially put its new generation Airbus A350-900 XWB into operation on September 30, flying the Hanoi - Paris route.
Meanwhile, Japan’s All Nippon Airways (ANA) is discussing the possibility of acquiring a strategic stake in Vietnam’s national flag carrier, which was partially equitized last year, according to the Financial Times.
The report quoted Shinichiro Ito, ANA Chairman, as saying that the airline was in discussions with “several carriers” as part of its strategy to expand internationally and to seek synergies in the Asian market.
ANA generated $1.6 billion in a share offer in 2012 specifically designed to fund purchases in Asian airlines.
