Skyteam members Vietnam Airlines and Aeroflot have begun codesharing on both domestic and international routes.

The routes under the codeshare, which took effect earlier this month, are as follows:

Moscow Sheremetyevo – Ho Chi Minh City Hanoi – Ho Chi Minh City
Moscow Sheremetyevo – Krasnodar Hanoi – Nha Trang 
Moscow Sheremetyevo – St. Petersburg Hanoi – Phu Quoc
Moscow Sheremetyevo – Ufa Ho Chi Minh City – Nha Trang

Codeshares allow passengers to book an itinerary with different operating airlines under a single booking, travel with a single boarding pass collected at the departure airport and have their checked luggage delivered all the way to their final destinations.

The Vietnam Airlines-Aeroflot codeshare follows the signing of a memorandum between the two airlines in 2018, according to a press release from Aeroflot.

Vietnam Airlines now operates three direct flights between Moscow and Hanoi per week on a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft. Aeroflot, on the other hand, offers nine flights per week between Moscow and Vietnam with a daily flight to Hanoi, and two flights per week to Ho Chi Minh City.

Earlier this year, Vietnam Airlines announced that it will move operations from Domodedovo to Sheremetyevo airport in Russia starting July 2.
