Vietnam Airlines was officially established as the country’s national flag carrieris on April 1993, based in Hanoi and majority-owned by the Vietnamese government. Utilising a fleet of narrow and wide-body Airbus, Boeing, and ATR aircraft, Vietnam Airlines operates an extensive network of domestic and regional services within Southeast and North Asia and international services to Europe and Australia.
Vietnam Airlines joined the SkyTeam alliance in June 2010, making it the first Southeast Asian carrier to have joined that alliance. It is expected to be restructured and partially privatized by 2015 to help it streamline its services and better compete with other airlines.
This would facilitate its long-term development plan that involves the improvement of its products and services, and the expansion of its fleet and flight network, as the airline aspires to become the second-largest full-service carrier in Southeast Asia by 2020.
