Minister of Transport Dinh La Thang and Finnish Minister of Economic Affairs Jan Vapaavuori signed an air services agreement on October 20 to allow civil aviation companies from both sides to enjoy the right to operate in each others air space during Jan Vapaavuori’s two-day official visit to Viet Nam.
The two countries also agreed on fees and tax regulations for airline companies as well as guidelines for flight safety and security standards.
The agreement will create a legal framework for co-operation and business opportunities for Vietnamese airliners and their Finnish counterparts, improving commerce, tourism, education and cultural exchanges.
A direct flight route between the two countries will be established as a result of the agreement.
Viet Nam also asked Finland to support the establishment of a pilot training centre in Viet Nam with technology and finance, said Lai Xuan Thanh, Head of the Civil Aviation Authority of Viet Nam.
