HÀ NỘI – Vietnam Airlines has warned its passengers who plan to travel between Việt Nam and France or transit through Paris to keep updated on flight schedules which might be affected by French pilots’ four-day strike since Saturday.
According to the national flag carrier, Air France has cancelled two flights under code-share agreement with Việt Nam Airlines between HCM City and Paris on Saturday and Sunday.
The cancellation affected more than 130 passengers who have been transferred to vacant seats on other flights operated by Vietnam Airlines .
The airline recommended its passengers should regularly check information on official websites of the two carriers, or seek assistance from Vietnam Airlines’ agents across the country and in France.
Vietnam Airlines has been keeping in contact with Air France to get updates on the case and prepare a contingency plan.
