Interline Agreement between Hahn Air and Vietjet expands cooperation

hahn air logoHahn Air is proud to announce the expansion of its cooperation with Vietjet. The Vietnamese low cost carrier has signed its very first interline agreement with the German scheduled airline and the leading provider of airline distribution services and ticketing solutions. The agreement with Hahn Air enables Vietjet to sell its flights on Hahn Air’s HR-169 ticket under its own designator “VJ” in the GDS – even in markets where the airline is not a member of the local Billing and Settlement Plan (BSP). Vietjet has already joined Amadeus independently with plans to enter more GDSs in the future.

Thanks to its partnership with Hahn Air Systems since 2014, Vietjet has already been available in all GDSs worldwide under the code H1. With H1-Air, Hahn Air Systems enables airlines with no GDS presence of their own to sell their services to over 95,000 travel agencies in 190 markets worldwide. Luu Duc Khanh, Managing Director of Vietjet, said: “Building on our fruitful partnership with Hahn Air Systems, we are now ready to embark on the next step of indirect distribution by benefitting from Hahn Air’s HR-169 product. Hahn Air has been an invaluable partner in developing our global distribution, building a worldwide presence and reaching new markets. We have been rapidly developing our network and have already opened 53 routes in Vietnam and across the region to international destinations such as Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Myanmar.”

Mathieu Montmessin, Vice President Product & Airline Distribution at Hahn Air, says “This deepening of the partnership between the Hahn Air Group and Vietjet is a perfect example of how a partner airline can take advantage of our products to grow its ticket distribution in three easy and risk-free steps. Firstly, through our H1-Air product, Vietjet successfully outsourced its complete indirect distribution and has been and will continue to be present in all global GDSs under the H1 code. Secondly, the airline will now join GDSs in its key markets where it will be able to sell flights under its own code on our HR-169 ticket thanks to our newly formed interline agreement. Finally, while Hahn Air secures Vietjet’s global availability, the Vietnamese airline can focus all of its efforts on its primary markets where it can join local BSPs to sell flights on its own tickets.”

Vietjet is the fifth partner of the Hahn Air Group to make use of a so-called dual partnership combining both the H1-Air product with an HR-169 interline agreement for an enhanced global distribution strategy. Through this dual partnership, Vietjet benefits from a full suite of services including scheduling, fare filing, messaging, inventory management, reservations, settlements, money repatriation and HR-169 ticketing.
