DOHA, Oct. 10 (Xinhua) -- Qatar Airways has announced its interline partnership with Vietnam-based Viejet Air to allow its passengers to travel to and from new points in Vietnam with a single reservation across both airlines' networks, Qatar News Agency (QNA) reported Tuesday.

The new partnership will allow passengers travelling to and from eight new points in Vietnam, not served directly by Qatar Airways, to connect via Qatar Airway's existing gateways in Vietnam, namely Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, the report said.

The new agreement with Viejet will offer passengers even more choices, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive Akbar al Baker said to reporters.

Qatar Airways is the first Gulf carrier to offer non-stop service to Vietnam's largest city, which first commenced operations to Ho Chi Minh City on March 25, 2007.

The Qatari government has taken specific steps to boost cooperation with Vietnam, and opened the Qatar state bank's branch in Ho Chi Minh City, as well as launched Qatar Airways' route from Doha to Ho Chi Minh City.
