The agreement was signed as part of the 17th session of the intergovernmental Russian-Vietnamese Commission on trade-economic and scientific-technical cooperation held in the Far Eastern Federal University, on the Russky Island.
The objective of cooperation between the parties is the organization of regular direct flights between Russia and Vietnam. In particular, the possibility of organizing flights with a frequency of 1-2 times per week by Airbus-320 type aircraft from Vladivostok to Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City or Cam Ranh.

- Taking into account the existence of a stable demand for flights to Vietnam, a direct regular flight will ensure passengers more comfort and optimal cost of air travel, - said JSC “VIA” Director General Igor Lukishin.
