Vietnam Airlines (Vietnamese: Tổng Công ty Hàng không Quốc gia Việt Nam) is the national flag carrier of Vietnam, and was established as a state enterprise in April 1989.
Vietnam Airlines Corporation was subsequently formed in 1995, after bringing together several service companies. The company is overseen by a seven-seat management board, members of which are appointed by the Prime Minister. Vietnam Airlines used to be the major stakeholder in Vietnam's second carrier, Pacific Airlines, but its share has recently been transferred to the Ministry of Finance.
In the coming years, along with the strong development of Vietnam tourism, Vietnam Airlines hopes to expand its services further to the United Kingdom and United States of America.
