Vietnam Airlines, Sentosa to promote tourism between Vietnam and Singapore

Vietnam Airlines and Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) have signed a one-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote tourism between Vietnam and Singapore.

As part of the MoU, Vietnam Airlines and SDC will collaborate and develop tourism products and promotional offerings aimed at cementing Sentosa Island as a destination of choice.

The partnership aims to promote tourism between Vietnam and Singapore

Vietnamese passengers travelling on Vietnam Airlines to Singapore can enjoy complimentary admission into Sentosa Island, as well as a complimentary ticket to either one of the island’s top attractions – Wings of Time, a light and water night show, or the Sentosa Island intra-island cable car.

In addition, these travellers will receive exclusive privileges with their Vietnam Airlines boarding passes, including discounts on the Sentosa Fun Discovery Pass which provides access to multiple leisure experiences and attractions across Sentosa.

Vietnam Airlines currently operates direct flights from Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi to Singapore, with 28 flights per week. Furthermore, a year-on-year increase of 22 per cent in visitor arrivals from Vietnam was recorded from April to November last year, according to statistics by Singapore Tourism Board.

Dang Anh Tuan, executive vice president, Vietnam Airlines, said: “The collaboration (aims) to not only bring exceptional benefits to travellers between Vietnam and Singapore but also to enhance the role of the national airline contributing to fostering economic, commercial, and cultural exchanges between the two countries.”

Chin Sak Hin, assistant chief executive and chief financial officer, SDC, added: “Given the growth potential of the country, this MoU offers tourists on Vietnam Airlines a host of privileges… with our newest day-to-night attraction Sentosa Sensoryscape set to soft launch in March, there will be even more new adventures and experiences to be discovered and we welcome our friends from Vietnam to Sentosa’s shores.”
