India Strategic - - ABC AVIATION -

HO CHI MINH CITY. Ja­pan Air­lines ( JAL) and Vi­et­jet July 25 reached a for­mal part­ner­ship agree­ment with the aim of im­prov­ing cus­tomer con­ve­nience and the qual­ity of op­er­a­tions and ser­vices while en­hanc­ing the cor­po­rate value of both com­pa­nies. The two air­lines have held a se­ries of dis­cus­sions on ex­pand­ing their net­works in re­sponse to the travel needs of peo­ple in neigh­bor­ing Asian coun­tries next to Viet­nam, in ad­di­tion to meet­ing grow­ing de­mand for air travel be­tween Ja­pan and des­ti­na­tions in Viet­nam. In line with the rapid eco­nomic growth in Viet­nam, de­mand for air travel be­tween Ja­pan and Viet­nam has been grow­ing strongly. JAL is al­ready op­er­at­ing daily non­stop ser­vices be­tween Tokyo (Narita) and Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi re­spec­tively, as well as be­tween Tokyo (Haneda) and Ho Chi Minh City.

Vi­et­jet, the first pri­vately owned air­line in Viet­nam, started flight ser­vices in 2011, and now op­er­ates an ex­pand­ing net­work all over Viet­nam and Asia. Vi­et­jet of­fers con­ve­nient and friendly ser­vices with rea­son­able fares, and suc­ceeded to cre­ate new de­mand in Viet­nam, yet as a new-age car­rier, it of­fers higher- class ser­vice called “SkyBoss”, which has been very well re­ceived among pas­sen­gers ex­pect­ing qual­ity ser­vice.

As a first step, JAL and Vi­et­jet have agreed to start code-share co­op­er­a­tion for all flight ser­vices be­tween Ja­pan and Viet­nam as well as JAL’s do­mes­tic flights, and Vi­et­jet’s do­mes­tic flights, as well as flights be­tween Viet­nam and the other Asian coun­tries. Th­ese are the sig­nif­i­cant add-ons ex­pected to cre­ate more cus­tomer con­ve­nience. JAL and Vi­et­jet will fur­ther ex­plore op­por­tu­ni­ties to de­velop the part­ner­ship in var­i­ous ar­eas, in­clud­ing a fre­quent flier part­ner­ship, air­craft op­er­a­tions and main­te­nance as well as ground han­dling ser­vices and train­ing.

More de­tails will be an­nounced at a later date on both air­lines’ web­sites.

To­gether with Vi­et­jet, JAL will be striv­ing to de­liver greater con­ve­niences and va­ri­ety of choices to cus­tomers with a more com­pre­hen­sive net­work in Asia.
