Vietnam Airlines

Vietnam Airlines was established in 1956, and became the country’s national flag carrier in 1993. However it was in 2003, with delivery of its first “state-of-the-art” B777, that things started to take off. In July 2016, Vietnam Airlines received a 4-Star Airline Certificate from Skytrax and now the airline serves more than 20 destinations in Vietnam plus nearly 30 international destinations with a fleet of mainly Boeing and Airbus aircraft.
