Vietnam Airlines Cargo fares well in 2016
Vietnam Airlines achieved some significant goals in 2016. The company grew in the domestic market, implemented flexible solutions to deal with challenges in the world’s market, and – more importantly – generated record earnings before tax.
The total consolidated profit of Vietnam Airlines and its subsidiaries is estimated to be nearly USD 113.7 million, a 140% increase over 2015, and 7% above target.
The carrier received and put into operation ten Boeing B787-9 Dreamliners and six Airbus A350-900 XWBs last year. On top of that, the cargo division transported more than 264,000 t of freight, 10% more than planned for 2016.
In 2017, Vietnam Airlines will continue to follow its plan to simplify the structure and aircraft numbers, improve its competitiveness and meet increasing customer demands. (ah)
