Vietnam Airlines has received a license from the us department of transportation to expand its two-way partnership with Delta Airlines after signing a partnership agreement with the us carrier in August 2019, a carrier representative said. This helps to reaffirm Vietnam airlines' ability to ensure safe operations and technology as well as its excellent quality of service, laying the foundation for the airline's future plans to open routes to the United States.
Representatives of Vietnam airlines said the two-way joint venture between the two airlines officially entered the implementation phase in January 2020. Passengers will only need to book seats and check in once with air Vietnam or delta, which will make it easier to visit popular destinations in Vietnam and the United States.
The delta logo code (starting with the letter "DL") will be displayed on routes that have joint ventures with delta, which will follow the Vietnam airlines code.
The flight range includes international routes between one or more destinations in the United States and one or more destinations in Vietnam.
Delta will sell tickets developed by Vietnam airlines for flights from Hanoi to Tokyo, Japan or other countries to meet the demand of tourists flying to the United States.
Delta is allowed to carry passengers, cargo, and mail in the form of a joint venture between the United States and Vietnam, consistent with the provisions of the Vietnam air services agreement of 2003.
The license is a sign that Vietnam airlines has perfected its ability to fly to and from the United States on all forms of scheduled, charter and associated flights. This is an important foundation for the company to understand and further develop the vietnam-us aviation market.
