Vietnam Airlines on February 22 signed an unprecedented agreement with the capital city of Ha Noi to partner in boosting tourism to the City as well as increase its brand awareness. At the signing ceremony, Nguyen Duc Chung, Chairman of Ha Noi People’s Committee affirmed that the City recognizes the importance of working closely with Vietnam Airlines to promote tourism and trade opportunities within the ASEAN region. Vietnam Airlines has an important role to play in providing greater accessibility between Viet Nam and ASEAN, he noted. Working together as partners, we will be able to create even greater opportunities to increase the number of tourists and business travellers flying to Ha Noi. Through joint efforts we will focus on raising the profile of Ha Noi and Viet Nam as a whole to ASEAN travellers, he added. The partnership will focus on using Vietnam Airline’s position as the leading carrier in the country to promote leisure travellers in the region – specifically rolling out tourism campaigns in ASEAN member countries.
