Vietnam Airlines’ affiliate in Germany has seen an impressive business performance with 10% and 5% increases in passenger number and revenue, respectively.

General Manager of the affiliate Nguyen Quoc Phuong revealed the figures at a recent meeting with partners and agents in Berlin. 

He expressed his belief that with profits earned from its SkyTeam airline alliance membership and the upcoming use of modern airplane models like B787-9 and A350 for flights to Germany, Vietnam Airlines will meet the demands of one of its most important international markets. 

Once Berlin-Brandenburg International Airport is put into operation and a direct flight route linking Berlin and Hanoi is officially launched, Vietnam Airlines will get more popular in Germany and other European countries, he added. 

Appreciating the carrier’s business outcome, Vice President of Marketing and Public Relations of Berlin – Brandenburg Airport Till Bunse voiced his hope that the Berlin-Hanoi route will open soon, bringing about practical benefits to both sides.
