The Ha Long Investment and Development Company (BIM Group) and its subsidiary Air Mekong signed here yesterday strategic corporation agreements with the Viet Nam Post Corporation (VNPost) to build a distribution system for Air Mekong’s e-tickets.
Under the agreements, each office of VNPost would become a sales agent for Air Mekong e-tickets via the internet network at the postal station, said Do Ngoc Binh, VNPost’s general director.
“VNPost has provided a similar service for many transport companies, including bus and train services, therefore, it has the confidence to extend the service to Air Mekong,” Binh said.
Under the system, Air Mekong customers can book an e-ticket at VNPost’s 18,000 postal stations nationwide. They can also book ticket elsewhere but pay at the postal stations.
Fares would be the same as those booked at other travel outlets, said Doan Quoc Viet, BIM Group’s Chairman.
As well as the new ticketing arrangement, VNPost and the BIM Group will also co-operate on such areas as cargo transport.
VNPost will also provide insurance services to the group via its subsidiary Postal Insurance Corporation.
The VNPost is a member of the Viet Nam Post and Telecommunications Group (VNPT) and has branches in 63 cities and provinces.
The BIM Group is an domestic investor in many sectors, including property, health care, trade and aviation.
