Air France, Vietnam Airlines Sign Codeshare Agreement

Air France has just signed a code-share agreement with Vietnam Airlines that, as of July 3, will let its customers fly nonstop from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to either Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City three times a week.
 
These flights will be operated by Vietnam Airlines in Boeing 777-200, under the ‘AF’ Air France flight code. They come in addition to flights Air France already operates via Bangkok to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Air France will be offering 13 instead of seven flights a week, including six between Paris and Hanoi and seven between Paris and Ho Chi Minh City.
 
Furthermore, within the terms of this agreement, as early as winter 2010, Air France will operate a nonstop flight between Ho Chi Minh City and Paris three times a week by Boeing 747-400, then by Boeing 777-300ER. In November, all flights to Vietnam will be nonstop.
