Singapore Airlines and Vietnam Airlines have announced plans to strengthen their existing partnership. It comes following the signing of an MoU, Memorandum of Understanding.
The two airlines are expected to explore the many possible opportunities to enter into more codesharing agreements with the sole ambition of connecting Vietnam and Singapore.
However, while the airlines explore codesharing between the two countries, there is also the expectation that this will include the broader carriers’ international network. Codeshare agreements offer fantastic opportunities and value to the customers that are flying the respective airlines. Better flexibility, routes, connectivity and more are all put forward once airlines sign agreements.
While the two major international airlines will expand their partnership, this has already been a long-standing one. It has stretched over 20 years, and as restrictions ease in the region, they’re excited at what the future will bring.
Vietnam Airlines, per Cirium data, has 89 aircraft in service with an average age of 8.6 years. Their most significant fleet type is the A321 with 61, followed by 15 787s and 13 A350s.
Singapore Airlines has 134 total aircraft in service, with an average age of 6.7 years. Their most significant fleet type is the Airbus A350, with 60. This is followed by the 777, with 20. Cirium provides the data.
