National flag carrier Vietnam Airlines is considering increasing the flight frequencies, and expanding routes to Germany, one of its key markets in 2023.

According to acting head of Marketing and Product Sales at Vietnam Airlines Pham Thi Nguyet, its brand in Germany exceeded the revenue plan in 2023, even higher than the pre-COVID-19 pandemic levels.

Germany remained one of the five most important international markets of Vietnam Airlines last year, she said at a ceremony to honour Vietnam Airlines’ agencies with the highest number of tickets sold in 2023.

Cao Chinh Mien, Director of Vietnam Airlines branch in Germany, said that after the COVID-19 pandemic, Vietnam Airlines resumed routes connecting Vietnam with Germany in March 2022. Since then, the airline has continuously increased its frequency. By the end of 2023, Vietnam Airlines’ flights to Germany had reached and exceeded the pre-pandemic levels.

Now, there are 12 flights from Frankfurt to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City weekly, two higher than that in the pre-pandemic period.

In 2024, Vietnam Airlines will add two more flights weekly. It also plans to introduce more products to the German market with three Munich-Vietnam flights weekly starting from October. It expects to increase to four flight by the end of this year. — VNS
