Vietjet Cargo and UPS have entered a “historic” agreement to leverage each other’s networks, a press release revealed, adding more air freight capacity on the Asia-US trade lane.

Vietjet Cargo will gain access to UPS’ global network, whilst the express operator can tap on the airline’s regional network within Vietnam, Thailand and other Asian destinations to deliver shipments faster.

“The cooperation with UPS paves the way for Vietjet to make Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Bangkok regional logistics hubs for one-stop-shop cargo transportation services from Asia to western destinations,” said Vietjet Cargo CEO Do Xuan Quang, adding that the cargo airline is looking to boost services not just within Southeast Asia but also in Northeast Asia.
